I have the unique parameters for my product. Sometimes I want to display some parameters, and sometimes I don't. So, I defined them in my product type.

My question is how do I display these fields for a product display? I don't want to create a duplicate when the values are already defined in the product type.


Fields from the referenced product entity are automatically available on the product display node.

Set the fields to visible on the product at


Then, set the fields to display at:


Update: As noted by vintorg below when creating your product reference field on the product display node, ensure "Render fields from the referenced products when viewing this entity." is checked.

That should do it.

  • The only fields with a visible option (in product type) are the ones already displaying. The rest of my custom fields in my product type are "Default, Plain Text, Trimmed", etc.

  • "Default, Plain Text, Trimmed" aren't fields, they are formatters for specific fields. Can you clarify your question? It sounds as though the fields are already available for display. Jun 24 '13 at 1:37
  • I'm sorry, yes, those are my available formatters in my manage display. It appears they are ready for display, but they don't show up on my product display.

  • Also, the fields aren't available in my display. I'm expecting them to magically display on my product display. Is that not correct?

  • Your product display settings must match the display mode, full, teaser etc.. Jun 24 '13 at 1:50

When I created my product reference field in my product display, I did not check "Render fields from the referenced products when viewing this entity."

I checked it, and now my product fields now render in my product display.

  • Ah yes, I had assumed that was checked. Glad it's sorted. Jun 24 '13 at 3:41
