We have a problem with the visibility. We need to add some new configurable products, but the customers should not be able to see them, until we finished testing them.
How are we supposed to do this the right way?
My idea is to create a new category which is not showing in the menu, and set the URL to something cryptic like
hidden_new_products_2020 so that nobody will find it, and in the product set the visibility to "Catalog" so that it does not show in the search.
But is this the official way or is there a better approach?
It would be best, if we could create the products on our non public staging (clone) shop and then just export the products and import them to our live shop. But this does not seem to be possible.
