      Description

      Steps to duplicate.

      1. Add an aggregated item to your shopping cart in the ecommerce app.
      2. View your shopping cart.
      3. Click on the aggregated item in your shopping cart.
      4. A new, default aggregated item is shown, not the aggregated item with the configuration your previously chose.

      I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but the current process flow was unexpected.

        Chris,

        I aggree with you that this is a missing feature. But also notice that this feature is not implemented for other products too.
        For example you cannot see or change the variant product varions.

        So I suggest there should be more generic approach, that works for all product types.

        Currently when clicked on item from cart it goes to product view screen, using only the productId.
        Instead we could use ShoppingCartItem and itemIndex and show the product detail plus ShoppingCartItem details -like configuration, variation, quantity in the cart....

        Other opinions ?

        Good observation. I removed "aggregate" from the summary.

        In my travels, I found a site with an interesting way of handling this issue.

        Hi Chris,

        Yes, fine indeed. I noticed that they use only dropdowns. This is also something we could consider, it's easier to deal with (less UI choices to do at coding level)
