    name string

    A human-recognizable identifier for the option, also used in the SLUG for child products. Option names can only contain A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9, hyphen, underscore, and period. Spaces or other special characters like ^, [], *, and $ are not allowed.

    The sort order value is visible when you add the variations and variation options to your catalogs. You can then use the sort_order value to program your storefront to display the variation options in the order that you want. The variation with the highest value of sort_order is displayed first. For example, a variation with a sort_order value of 3 appears before a variation with a sort_order value of 2. You can specify any numbers that you want. You can use 1, 2, 3, or 100, 90, 80, including, zero or negative numbers. You can set sort_order to either null or omit it entirely from the request if you wish to remove an existing sort_order attribute.
