It would be great if IBM could provide the ability to reset the data in Sterling IV or the ability to roll back to an older data snapshot. This will help the clients a lot.
Right now, we are asked to use APIs to do it, which is not efficient and...
Can we subscribe to the 'IV events' for different enterprises?
Events published based on separate inventory orgs, reduces the loads on the receivers, and it will increase the throughput.We are eagerly waiting for this enhancement from IBM, request you to please expedite this feature as soon as possible.
Need api to fetch total reservations made against the item (Aggregated Reservation Details)
At this moment there is no API which can provide total reserved quantities against an Item . This API is required to understand the aggregated reservations details for an Item , against all shipnodes . IF the shipnode is paased then the total quan...
Order Hub: Streamline Inventory Adjustments across Segments
In prior R2 release, we only had RTL and RTL Store Segments. As such inventory adjustments to a Store Segment occurred as follows: Run an inventory search for a specific Retail Store Segment (RTL-XXX). The inventory adjust logic automatically decr...
Provide Audit capability for IV events generated. Currently, the audit is enabled for supply and demand updates to IV but there is not capability for client to know if an event is generated to webhook or COS. We see there are many instances where ...
Transaction ID should be treated as unique by Sterling IV regardless of when it is posted. This will help to avoid duplicate transaction updates into the Platform.
Currently, Sterling IV has the ability to not reprocess a transaction with the same transaction id only for 15 mins. But at BigLots, we have business cases wherein the same transaction can be reposted after 15 days to one month. We have discussed ...
Move aggregation of Resource pool capacity consumption to asynchronous process to reduce locking
As of now manageCapacityReservation/reserveInventory/reserveAvailableInventory API calls are locking YFS_RES_POOL_CAPCTY_CONSMPTN when capacity is reserved against node/date/shift combination. This slows down reservations when pick capacity enabled.
A network level reservation has been made against a Distribution Group. The consumer proceeds through the checkout journey and now that reservation needs to be modified and made at the node level (eg consumer has now chosen to pick up in store). W...
Ability to trigger the Supply or Demand buckets inventory picture for an item on demand/need basis
Currently client systems are subscribed to supply change and demand change events from IV over webhooks to reflect inventory buckets for client front end needs. For any missing events due to any reason, there is no functionality in IV to retrigger...
Include an Identifier to differentiate between the Inventory dbavailabilitycache message triggered by a delta vs full sync(publish_all trigger)
In our integration with IV services, we encountered scenarios where a full sync is being consumed by MW system and in the interim delta change comes in, the delta change processing is delayed because of the lengthy processing of full sync messages...
