Need Threshold based ATP publish for DG Availability changes.

DG Availability was triggered every time when a store reaches capacity and IBM COS buckets are filled with more objects, causing backlog in consumption. Many stores were hitting capacity during the day and, every time this happened, IV triggered updates to hybris for all items with inventory in that store. This caused a huge volume of IV triggered updates to hybris.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

DG Availability change will be published only when the Threshold is reached, for the Item and Ship Node/ DG, which will reduce the number of IV-triggered updates to Hybris
