The inventory model object and the allowed CRUD operations on the related resource endpoint
Multiple inventory model strategies are available. You can select a specific one by setting the
strategyattribute accordingly, depending on how you want your order items to be fulfilled. An inventory model strategy is responsible to decide how many shipments are generated and from which stock location each shipment will be shipped. Based on the selected strategy, if an order contains line items from two or more stock locations, the order can be split into two or more shipments, one for each location. Stock transfers from a stock location (e.g. secondary) to another (e.g. primary) can be created as well.
In case the inventory model strategy is left as default – no split – just a single shipment from a single stock location is always created.
Draft stock reservations (i.e. created before the order placement) have a default expiration date of 1 hour. You can override the default duration by setting the inventory model
stock_reservation_cutoffattribute to the desired value (expressed in seconds).
Any change to the stock reservations expiration date won't affect existing stock reservations. It will be applied to the ones created after the update only.
