  • #115752 Update Workflows to take advantage of the inventory tracking changes
    Previously the Inventory Status had three options: "Enabled", "Disabled" and "Ignored". From release 8.7, the Inventory status can be either "Enabled" or "Disabled", indicating whether the inventory is being tracked or not. The "Ignored" status is obsoleted. After upgrading to Commerce 8.7, variations that have inventory status set to "Ignored" will be treated as "Disabled". 

    Also, prior to the 8.7 release, a product could be preordered when configured as “Allowed preorder”, and the “Start date” could occur before the request date. In release 8.7, the request date must be on or after the preorder available date, and before the purchase available date.

    Refer to Inventory requests for more details about the changes. The workflow source code package has been updated for this release and can be downloaded from here (requires login to World).
