converting Node reservation(node1) into Node Demand(node2)

For DFS(delivery from store) often times a reservation made against a store may have to be reassigned to a different store due to inventory reasons. The legacy OMS makes the determination to resource to the second node.

Note: For this implementation, we only have eCom, legacy OMS and IV. Sterling OMS is not in scope


1. Create a reservation against node1

2. Invoke adjust demand against node2 and pass reservation id of node1 with the same quantity in the input.

Result: The system does not use the reserve demand of node1 to adjust demand in node2.

    This feature already exists. Given a reservation was made, the inventory will be accounted for future availability call until the reservation is consumed. In the case if reservation was made against node one, the customer can create a demand against node2 and pass the original reservation made against node1 in the SAME demand call. This effectively subtracts the inventory at node 2 and free up inventory at node1. IV already takes care of this internally.

    Consider doing this
    1) Make reservation item01 against node01
    2) create demand for node2 and include reservation from (1). Include the reservation id in the reservation [] block for adjust/sync demand input
    3) Customer observe the inventory at Node01 is freed up while Node2 availability is reduced.
