See here the fields of the template for simple product
The unique reference number that differentiates variants for each global product
The EAN unique reference number that belongs to each variant. In case it is available.
The SKU code identifies the global product that includes all the variants. On the other hand, the SKU variant code is used to add specific information related to each variant. These specific fields of the template only are updated for each variant, together with the barcode, the subtotal, and the cost. All other fields are updated for the global product only.
