findInventory API does not allow to bypass inventory of shipnode passed in the input in case inventory transfer to be peformed forcefully
Now a days, we are getting requirements to implement scenarios to transfer the inventory from one node to the ship or pickup node though there is a inventory available in ship node. These are the route to store scenarios for most of the clients. It is implemented for some specific set of items or even for all the items for some clients.
Also client wants follow this api call sequence from ecommerce sites,
1. Do the availability check with above consideration. Output should suggest to transfer the inventory.
2. Reserve the inventory with output of above check.
3. Create order with reservation.
Currently, create order does have option to pass IsFirmPredefinedNode attribute to bypass node stamped in order. Also there is a mechanism to send OrderLineSourcingCntrl element to control this. However such a feature is not available for findInventory api.
We need such a control in findInventory api.
