You may find that a production type has been disabled due to outdated conditional rules on a style guide. Currently, you are only able to apply Style Guide updates to enabled production types.
In order to apply updates to a disabled production type, you will first have to adjust the properties to temporarily enable the production type.
For example, say the current style guide only has On Model enabled when the property “Brand” is equal to “ABC Brand”:
However, for upcoming products, you need to shoot On Model on this style guide when “Brand” is equal to “DEF Brand”. With the current conditional rules, On Model will be disabled for these products, preventing you from simply applying the style guide updates to this production type:
However, you can adjust the style guide conditional rules and apply these changes with just a few extra steps.
First, you will need to change the conditional rules on the style guide to enable the On Model production type when “Brand” is equal to “DEF Brand” and save these changes:
In order to then update the On Model production type to the updated style guide, you will need to briefly enable the On Model production type for the DEF Brand product using the original conditional rules.
In this example, you would do this by temporarily changing the Brand value from “DEF Brand” to “ABC Brand”:
Once enabled, you can apply the style guide updates to the On Model production type, allowing it to remain enabled according to the updated conditional rules, and then use Edit Product again to change the Brand value back to “DEF Brand”:
