NBC Setup process and behaviour

This is follow up case related to TS005717195.

During our last A-Sale time , 55% of lines weren’t optimized for the 5/17-5/23 due to NBC setup not done properly for node 199.

We know that if the NBC setup was not done properly for any node , then Rank API will get failed , in the rank node response if the node (199) was returned.

In the rank node response if the node (199) was not returned, those orders would be optimized.

Clarifications/Action Item:

Instead of returning error due to one node set up issue, Is that possible Optimizer just ignore that node alone and optimize against remaining nodes and issue a warning/alert so we can correct it?

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

Optimizer just ignore particular node alone which has issue and optimize against remaining nodes and issue a warning/alert, so that Optimizer sourcing will not get impacted
