  • [in-commerce] User login/registration doesn't properly reflect on Shopping Cart [5.2.2-B1]
Skip to end of metadata

There are 2 checkout workflows supported in In-Commerce:

  1. login/register first
    1. perform login/registration
    2. add products to Shopping Cart
    3. complete checkout
  2. login/register any time
    1. add products to Shopping Cart
    2. perform login/registration
    3. complete checkout

When user isn't logged-in during checkout process then:

  • discounts for non-logged in users only are applied
  • the Shopping Cart contents is associated with virtual Guest user

If user decides to register/login then:

  • user in Shopping Cart is changed to the one, that is now registered/logged-in
  • discounts are recalculated to reflect currently registered/logged-in user

This works fine with default In-Commerce installation, but the customized PHP code (when present) can't detect Shopping Cart user change.


In the "OrdersEventHandler::updateUserID" method change current Shopping Cart user via "OrdersItem" object instead of doing direct database update.

  1. The direct database update was used because otherwise we'll end up in situation where just logged-in user can't even set itself as owner of current order due permission check in "OrdersEventHandler::checkItemStatus" method.
