Configurable framework in IV to determine distribution group(s) to be used for inventory lookup functions
Currently, the IV API's expect the requesting application to pass the DG to be used for inventory lookup. In our setup, the determination of DG is configured based on OMS sourcing rules and we have numerous parameters (SKU attributes, shipping state/country, selling channel) that drive which DG or set of DG's to be used.
So, externalizing the distribution group logic outside IV will require customization work in the calling application and these are rules that belong within the inventory availability engine. Requesting an enhancement to IV to support a configurable framework that can be used to determine the set of DG's or locations to be used for inventory lookup/reservation.
