Reset dirty Node - Optimized approach for IV Merged

We are looking at an option where we have one invocation to reset the dirty flag instead of doing for each item ship node. In full sync there will be 150K items and 3000 stores hence this approach of resetting dirty node for each item and ship node have significant operational impact.

    Hi, thank you for your idea. We are targeting delivery of this capability for Q2 2021. The dirty reset will need a time limit coming from a potential SYNC flag or timeout. Which would be preferred? Sync flag or timeout?

    Sorry for the delay in response, as we have not received any notification on the Admin Response.

    We prefer the SYNC Flag option instead of Timeout . Hope the SYNC Flag is part of SyncSupply API in IV. Please provide us the details.

    In addition, is there an option for the IV API's to only reset the dirty node settings when there is a positive inventory adjustment (instead of relying on a static Y/N flag to reset the dirty node setting).
