Distinct Url For Product Option Combination?

It's possible to have a distinct SKU for particular option combination. Is it possible to reference the option combination in the URL?

My expected result would be some kind of a configurable string, so for example:


Or failing that, something as a GET variable:


But in either case, requesting the URL would load the product with the appropriate options selected.

ah ok. This is in fact possible. It appears if you add


you can set product options in the URL

If anybody knows offhand where this is documented that would be interesting to see anyhow.


Where do you find the option id/variant ID?

Can you give a more complete url string?


if you familiar with the code inspector of your browser, both parameters can be found on the Editing option page
