  • I have searched for similar issues in both open and closed tickets and cannot find a duplicate
  • The issue still exists against the latest master branch of WooCommerce
  • This is not a usage question (Those should be directed to the community, unless this is a question about a premium plugin in which you should use the helpdesk for official extensions or contact the author of 3rd party extensions)
  • I have attempted to find the simplest possible steps to reproduce the issue
  • I have included a failing test as a pull request (Optional)

Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Have woocomerce 3.1.0 or 3.1.1
  2. Add at least two attributes to a product (like size - 9, 10, 11, 12 and girth - S, M, L, XL)
  3. Create multiple variations to the same product for sizes, but leave some of the girth options out, for example, create a variation of size 12, but only allow XL
  4. In the shop fronted, after selecting the product with size 12, the shop still allows to select the other girth sizes.

Expected behavior and actual behavior

When I follow those steps, I see variations of a product that do not match the settings in the backed.

I was expecting it to work like prior to the upgrade to -> 3.1.x, where the "non existing" variations are filtered out, and not shown. Now we just get a warning, that this combination does not exist!

Increase the threshold above the number of variations in your product There is a limit of 30 to prevent it needing to load all variations at once.
