Need sku exclusion ability in create cycle count program api

Create Count Program API doesn't have SKU exclusion and inclusion list.

Note : SIM UI ability to alter the program is required or not, we will confirm.


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

SKU exclusion will allow the store to exclude specific set of skus during cycle count generation.

    Please let us know you need any further details, if we update the value manually in Production, any item feed will override again the velocity code. The solution suggested will not work for long term and more stores. please let me know you need any details.

    @Niveditha, Updating manually the velocity code is not scalable solution, we need a sku level exclusion criteria in the create cycle count program api end point. please check and let us know the feasibility.

    For the items which needs to be excluded, can you please check if the velocity code can be changed and once the count is completed you can update it back to velocity code A.

    Current Cycle count program has ability to exclude location type, velocity code

    we need feature to exclude some skus from the included velocity code.currently we dont have selective sku exclusion from the already included velocity code.

    for eg. below create program include velocity code A, we would like to exclude few set of skus which has velocity code A

    Please let us know if you need any further details.

    We need sku exclusion and specific bin number exclusion in the Create count program api.

    Business wants to exclude /include specific SKU's/Location while generating cycle count. These should be optional field.
