Items Actions API -

  1. Can I have the inventory control for all the items at all the locations at the single call?
    - No. The inventory call always happens location wise for all the items across all aggregators in a single call.

  2. Can I enable/disable items for a particular platform?
    - No. If there is an API request made to disable/enable an item/option then, the action will perform across all the platforms.

  3. Do I need to set the POS store id in the field "location_ref_id" while making a call?
    - Yes.

  4. Can I have the control for stock out/stock in the options/variants?
    - You can pass the POS options/variants ids under the attributes "item_ref_ids[]" to stock-out or stock in. When you have the ids clash between items and options at your end, you can use "option_ref_ids[]" to stock only options.
