Catalog rules stop working for a configurable product if its simple product is re-named.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a configurable product with an associated simple product.

  2. Create a category.

  3. Assign only the configurable product to the new category.

  4. Create new catalog rules:

    • Condition = Category contains <new category id>
    • Action = 50% discount
    • Active = Yes
  5. Perform reindex.

  6. Check the configurable product on the frontend (the discount should be applied).

  7. Check the catalogrule_product table (the simple product should have a discount).

  8. Go to the Admin and change the name of the simple product. This would add a record to the catalogrule_product_cl table.

  9. Execute the cron or the bin/magento cron:run --group=index --bootstrap=standaloneProcessStarted=1 command.

  10. Check the catalogrule_product table.

Expected results:

The configurable product has a discount.

Actual results:

  • The discount records created for the simple products are missing in the catalogrule_product table.
  • The configurable product on the frontend has the full original price.
