Operations With Bundled Products

1, but it can be modified, as described below.
- Active – the activity state of the product record.

Activity Interdependence for Product and Product Bundle Records
Generally, active product bundle records have only active product records. Linking at least one non-active record to a product bundle leads to deactivation of the given bundle record. If you try to activate this bundle record again, the following error message appears:
Prior to activating the product bundle record again, you have to activate all its bundled products or unlink non-active product records from it.
When a bundled product record is deactivated during its editing, all product bundles, to which it is linked, also become non-active.
Please, mind these activity interdependence rules when editing product and product bundle records.
