Hey @iamivan 

If you are using the REST Admin API to create a product resource, the expected functionality would be that the Product.handle field is automatically generated from the title value (string) - Product API doc here. In testing with one of the example requests, the response body included a generated handle as expected per the documentation.

Hope that helps clarify - Cheers!
