my client want to show short description under mini cart title:

You can see image screenshot:

enter image description here

I used grep command found it coming from :/vendor/magento/module-checkout/CustomerData/DefaultItem.php

and using html template file from: /Magento_Checkout/web/template/minicart/item/default.html

so i have passed short description from DefaultItem.php to Ajax response show short description and Same changes on html template file default.html also but not reflecting on front.

i have cleared caches, deployed content and tried on private browser but still not working.

  • Please check it in private browser or clear Local Storage from the browser and then check it, Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 12:58
  • please attach code how to pass description and how to display description in html file Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 13:18
  • Have you do what I say? Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 13:27
  • Please load the site in browser & check in network tab with pub file path "default.html" and open it. Has it the code for short desc ? If no, add directly inside it and save. check if it is work. you also don't need to run command as you are working in pub file path directly. Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 13:43

You need to override this file


and add call sort description value here like below

     * {@inheritdoc}
    protected function doGetItemData()
        $imageHelper = $this->imageHelper->init($this->getProductForThumbnail(), 'mini_cart_product_thumbnail');
        $productName = $this->escaper->escapeHtml($this->item->getProduct()->getName());

        return [
            'options' => $this->getOptionList(),
            'qty' => $this->item->getQty() * 1,
            'item_id' => $this->item->getId(),
            'configure_url' => $this->getConfigureUrl(),
            'is_visible_in_site_visibility' => $this->item->getProduct()->isVisibleInSiteVisibility(),
            'product_id' => $this->item->getProduct()->getId(),
            'product_name' => $productName,
            'product_sku' => $this->item->getProduct()->getSku(),
            'product_url' => $this->getProductUrl(),
            'product_has_url' => $this->hasProductUrl(),
            'product_price' => $this->checkoutHelper->formatPrice($this->item->getCalculationPrice()),
            'product_price_value' => $this->item->getCalculationPrice(),
            'product_image' => [
                'src' => $imageHelper->getUrl(),
                'alt' => $imageHelper->getLabel(),
                'width' => $imageHelper->getWidth(),
                'height' => $imageHelper->getHeight(),
            'canApplyMsrp' => $this->msrpHelper->isShowBeforeOrderConfirm($this->item->getProduct())
                && $this->msrpHelper->isMinimalPriceLessMsrp($this->item->getProduct()),

And override this file in your theme


and add below code in file

<div class="sort-description" data-bind="html:sort_description"></div>

You will sure get description in minicart
