Would like to be able to backorder a single line on a release

Once an order is released, we would like the ability to back order a single line. At this time we are only able to back order a full release.

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

This idea would allow us to cancel a single line from an order once it has been released instead of backordering the entire order and then letting it reshop to the node.

    Hi Jake, thank you for submitting your request.

    Looking at the Javadocs, are you able to backorder a single line in a release by using the changeRelease API and passing in the line with an OrderLine/@Action = "BACKORDER" ?

    I don't see a PMR related to this request, so if there has already been discussion on a PMR, please share the number so that I can review the details.
