I need to use for my extension either a brand attribute or a manufacturer attribute in the products. Nevertheless, I cannot find any attribute that corresponds to that case.
For example, doing something like these returns nothing:
$this->_logger->debug(' Manufacturer ' . $product->getAttributeText('manufacturer'));
And something like these:
$this->_logger->debug('Manufacturer ' .$product->getManufacturer());
raises an exception.
Am I missing something or it doesn't exist by default?
