IV to publish Inventory record for inventory audit

The OMS published Inventory Audit in OMS DB but after Inventory is moved to IV this capability is missing . The Inventor audit is crucial for an organization to understand the flow and how it affects OMS order life cycle.

How will this idea be used?

While implementing OMS solution , the client would like to know the inventory at OMS side in past. The Sourcing , Scheduling , Release process checks for inventory based on rules and eventually moves order forward. In absence of an audit trail its hard to determine reason for inventory shortage at location(Node). Hence need audit to be logged for inventory . As with Order Audits externalized outside , we need a similar feature to externalize Inventory audits outside IV and OMS.We will use this data to move to  blockchain for audit purpose.

    This needs to be prioritized and Release needs to be locked. Lack of this is constraining Support team to answer basic questions from Ops / Inventory control on why something is getting cancelled, when did the snapshot change etc
