Assign several attributes to one SKU


I've got a question on this article from official documentation - http://www.drupalcommerce.org/user-guide/product-attributes-variations

In this article they creating separate SKU for each attribute. How can I create a product with several attributes but one SKU?

Each product should be unique. When you see many SKUs you see many products being referenced by one product display.

Ex: when I have a Macbook in two colors, black and white, I have the same product display (Macbook) which reference two different products, macbook white and macbook black. This way you can control stock and other things very well.

Answering your question: there's no way to have the same SKU for many products. SKU should be unique. I think you need to understand more about how all of these rules works.
