Looking at the definition for: Mage_Catalog_Model_Product_Link, I see the following types of product-links:
const LINK_TYPE_RELATED = 1;
const LINK_TYPE_GROUPED = 3;
const LINK_TYPE_UPSELL = 4;
const LINK_TYPE_CROSSSELL = 5;
Conspicuously missing from this list is #2 - link type = “Super”. Why is this one missing?
In order to programmatically create configurable products, I need to be able to link them to “simple” products. This is done via linking which will ultimately create records in the “catalog_product_super%” tables.
Is there a different way (API) to create these links between configurable and simple products? I’ve already been able to create the configurable and simple products AND I’ve been able to create the “Super” attributes needed for the configurable products. Now I just need to link them to the simple products… but these APIs seem to have been removed…
