I have the following XML file sections.xml at the following path:


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <action name="customproduct/manage/add">
        <section name="cart" />

I have a bit of code on a page which sends the product ids and quantities to a controller which adds the product to the cart (the products do get added to the cart).

This does not update the mini-cart. If I add another product using the method for default products (Standard add to cart) then it works and the mini-cart is updated.

What is the minimum I require for the mini-cart to load changes?

Including via AJAX


Create a new file in ModuleName/etc/frontend sections.xml your miniCart will Update.

  • <config xmlns:xsi="w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Customer:etc/sections.xsd"> <action name="ModuleName/customer/addtocart"> <section name="cart"/> </action> </config> – Saurabh Taletiya Oct 18 '16 at 10:26
  • Isn't that exactly what I already have? – LM_Fielding Oct 18 '16 at 10:53

The reason for this is that I was hitting it with an ajax request to a relative url - the section will only update in version 2.1.4 if an absolute url is used.
