Hi all,

can you please help me understand the difference between discontinued and deactivated products ? I am talking from technical perspective. What happens if I deactivate a product vs. if I mark it discontinued.

    If you change the is_active flag on a product to false, it will be unpublished and then not available from storage... while for discontinued product, you are just changing the availability... you can still show it in your catalog, but just don't sell it (don't allow the customer to buy it)
