Publish SKU attributes as part of IV API's including ATP lookup and ATP publish events
In our ecosystem, we have systems that use alternate SKU identifiers (ex- UPCCode instead of SKU Id). Without the support for cross referencing SKU's between the various item aliases, additional lookup calls will be needed to get the Item id needed for IV API's. The same holds true for ATP publish events where we need the ability to publish additional SKU attributes (item alias, additional SKU attributes including extended attributes).
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Used to uniquely identify an SKU/item using alternate item identifiers (UPC code) and avoid additional API calls to do the cross reference.
Also enables easier data transformation within the MW layer based on SKU attributes (special handling to support scenario such as pre order where MW layer needs to transform data to consuming applications).
