Drupal Commerce 2: How to add a product taxonomy category

In the Urban Hipster Drupal Commerce 2 demo site, the catalogue is made up of a number of products grouped by taxonomy terms. These terms (Women, Men, Hats, Special, Clearance etc.) are grouped into Vocabularies (Category, Brand, Artist, Special, etc.), which can be referenced within a product in order to categorize it. A product can be assigned to multiple terms in multiple vocabularies, allowing us to create various cataloging options.

We already have the catalogue functionality configured using Apache Solr. So, in this Acro Media Tech Talk video, we quickly cover how to add new taxonomy terms and then add a product to the new term. It's easy!

Also, it's important to note that ANY content can be organized in this way, not just products. News, blogs, resources, videos, images, you name it! If it's content, it can be organized and filtered with taxonomy and Solr.
