Get Availability by tag (inventory identifier)

IV does not currently provide availability by tag. It does support taking supplies/demands by tag.

OMoC will generate the TagNumber and pass it to IV for supply/demand updates. IV will store them as OMoC had provided. However, you will not be able to request availability by tag number.

Note that OMoC generates TagNumber as an aggregation of the tag identifiers. For example, if you have LotNo and BatchNo as the item's tag-identifiers and createOrder is called with LotNo=L1 and BatchNo=B1 in the OrderLineInvAttRequest element, OMS by default will set TagNumber (aka tagNumber) as "L1|B1" when making the demand update to IV.

For supply sync/updates to IV, you'll need to use the same logic as OMS to define the tag number. Or you can use your own logic to determine the tag number and implement the YFSGetTagNoUE in OMS to use the same logic.

But again, IV only supports showing availability across tags. So even if an order is placed asking for L1|B1, the availability will be across all.

How will this idea be used?

Currently DalTile is use invetory identifiers for availability calculations.
