IV event to publish availability only when item threshold is reached.

Currently IV publish event : ProductAvailabilityToSell.ShipNodeChange when the availability for an item at a ship node changes.

Similarly IV event DgAvailabilityChange is published when the availability for an item in a DG changes.

This results in a lot of event messages generated and published to Webhook/IBM Cloud Object Storage.

A configuration can be provided for IV tenant to either publish events for all Availability changes or to publish only when threshold levels are reached. Similar to RaiseEventOnAllAvailabilityChanges flag for RTAM.

When this flag to publish an event for all changes is set to 'Y', ProductAvailabilityToSell.ShipNodeChange events can be published for all availability changes, otherwise, events can be published only then Threshold limits are reached for Item /Distribution Group.

How will this idea be used?

ProductAvailabilityToSell.ShipNodeChange event messages will be published to the Website to update the inventory cache.

If we can send ProductAvailabilityToSell.ShipNodeChange messages only when threshold (High,Medium,Low) levels are reached , this will reduce network traffic for inventory updates.

When ProductAvailabilityToSell.ShipNodeChange event is published for all inventory changes (within threshold or outside threshold) a large number of messages are generated which also impacts middleware/front end infrastructure processing inventory messages.
