@clickdigitalinteractive , thank for you report.
Check this documentation
A configurable product allows the shopper to choose options from drop-down, multiple select, visual swatch and text swatch input types. Each option is actually a separate, simple product. We add label feature request
This is a critical missing feature for me. I need to send separate download links based on the options the customer selects. I hope this is added soon.
No solution yet?
I also could really use this...
For anyone who desperately needs this functionality, I've written a module that makes it possible: https://github.com/crankycyclops/Crankycyclops_ConfigurableProduct
The code needs more testing, and it isn't currently installable via composer. For now, I've provided this as a proof of concept only (but you should be able to copy it over to your Magento installation without too many issues.)
The testing I did do was done on Magento 2.2.6.
