Default Field Values

To save time when creating products, the default value of several product fields references values from another field. You can either accept the default value, or enter another. The following fields have automatically generated default values:

  • Field

    Description

    SKU

    Based on product Name.

    Meta Title

    Based on product Name.

    Meta Keywords

    Based on product Name.

    Meta Description

    Based on product Name and Description.

The placeholders that represent the value of another field are enclosed in double-curly braces. Any attributeA characteristic or property of a product; anything that describes a product. Examples of product attributes include color, size, weight, and price. code that is included in the product attribute set can be used as a placeholder.

To edit the placeholder value:

1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.
2. In the panel on the left under Catalog, choose Catalog.
3. Expand the Product Fields Auto-Generation section. Then, make any changes needed to the placeholder values.

For example, if there’s a specific keyword that you want to include for every product, or a phrase that you want to include in every meta description, you can type the value directly into the appropriate field.

If you want to keep the existing placeholder values, be careful to preserve the double curly braces that enclose each markup tagA snippet of code that can be used to add functionality or content to a page..
