Using ProductRepository to seed products
I'm trying to build a custom seeder that seeds configurable products, however I can't get it to work when I'm adding the "super_attributes" array inside the $data needed by the repository.
$attributes = [ 'type' => 'configurable', 'attribute_family_id' => '3', 'sku' => $card->CA_COMPTEUR, 'super_attributes' => array( 'color' => array( 0 => 1, 1 => 2, 2 => 3, ), 'print_support' => array( 0 => 11, 1 => 12, ), 'print_size' => array( 0 => 13, 1 => 14, 2 => 15, 3 => 16, ) ), 'family' => '3' ]; $product = app(ProductRepository::class)->create($attributes);
I'm getting an array to string conversion error. I don't understand because when I'm duping the data sent from the backoffice this is the exact same array. What am I doing wrong ?
When I'm deleting the "super_attributes" array from the data this work perfectly but then I can't have the variants.
Have a nice day !

Can you share the full error or screenshot because the array looks fine to me?
I get this error when i come to create() function of the Configurable type, to me the array look fine, I'm sending exactly the same thing as the backoffice. Maybe calling the repository from a seeder is the issue ?
$product = $this->productRepository->getModel()->create($data);
The bug is produced by this line in the configurable type.
I'm stuck on this issue for several hours and I can't find a solution, I'm desperate.
Can i get around this by using the product factory ? Will it create the variants for me like the repository can do ?
Thank you a lot !
I found the solution !
Laravel allow us to bypass $fillable property from the model when using a seeder, in my case I didn't want it.
I simply had to use
and it worked !
