Release schedule for supported and compatible releases.
Inventory Management 1.2.6 (module version:
magento/inventory-metapackage = 1.2.6) is supported with version 2.4.6 and compatible with version 2.4.0 of Adobe Commerce, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure, and the Magento Open Source code base.
The storefront now displays composite products (configurable, bundle, and grouped) as in-stock when child products that had been sold out are returned to stock. Previously, the storefront indicated that the composite product was out of stock under these conditions.
Configurable product options are now displayed as expected as out of stock on the storefront if the option was created with quantity set to 0 and Display out-of-stock products is enabled.
Category page caches are no longer invalidated when stock quantity changes and the product is still in stock. Adobe Commerce now loads pages from the cache instead of regenerating them when product quantity (and nothing else) on the storefront category page changes.
The category list product count is now correct when using Inventory in single-source mode with the Display Out-Of-Stock Products setting enabled. Adobe Commerce now checks whether a product is salable when counting.
Cart Price rules for In-Store Delivery now work as expected when Inventory is enabled. Previously, cart price rule-generated discounts were not applied under these conditions.
Updating product inventory in scheduled mode no longer clears all caches. Previously, the Inventory indexer cleared all configuration caches.
The value for the Allow Multiple Boxes for Shipping attribute for a product in Advanced Inventory is now saved as expected.
Adobe Commerce now issues accurate reservation compensation after a partial refund credit memo for an order that was placed with in-store pickup. Previously, an incorrect reservation saved to the
inventory_reservation table when an admin user created a credit memo without selecting the Return to Stock checkbox.
Adobe Commerce no longer displays configurable products as out of stock on the storefront when one of its variations has been manually returned to stock in deployments implementing multi-source inventory.
Column position on the product grid (Catalog > Products) no longer reverts to its previous position after the page reloads in deployments with multiple inventory sources configured.
Stock quantity is now correct after a credit memo is issued for a virtual product when the Back to stock checkbox is not selected.
You can now save categories with automatic product sorting and scope that is assigned to non-default stock. Previously, Adobe Commerce did not save the category and displayed this error:
Something went wrong while saving the category.
Configurable product stock status is now updated as expected when the product is created with all out-of-stock configurable variations.
The reservation inconsistency analyzer tool now works correctly with partially shipped orders that contain configurable, bundle, and grouped products. Composite product types are now analyzed. Previously, cancellations and refunds were saved only for parent products, not for subproduct order items of configurable and ship-together bundle products.
Adobe Commerce no longer displays an error when an admin user tries to assign 200 or more inventory sources to a stock or product.
Adobe Commerce now supports the creation of a credit memo for an order from which a product has been deleted. Previously, merchants could not create a credit memo when products had been deleted from the order after an invoice had been created. The application displayed this error:
Following products with requested skus were not found: s00001. t.
Stores are now filtered based on both single and multiple store IDs. The
event product attribute code has been added to the list of reserved attribute codes. Previously, the Low Stock Report threw an exception when the Inventory module was installed.
Layered navigation filters now work as expected, and out-of-stock products are now appended to the storefront category product list. The new
is_out_of_stock sorting attribute uses the Elasticsearch dynamic field mapper for the storefront product collection.
Composite product (bundle, grouped, and configurable) stock status is updated as expected when child product stock status is changed by a REST
POST /rest/V1/inventory/source-items call.
Inventory Management 1.2.5 (module version:
magento/inventory-metapackage = 1.2.5) is supported with version 2.4.5 and compatible with version 2.4.0 of Adobe Commerce, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure, and the Magento Open Source code base.
The default inventory stock status of bundle and grouped products is now updated as expected when a merchant creates a shipment from the Admin. Previously, the status of these products remained unchanged after a shipment was created.
Configurable products are now returned back to stock when one of the following conditions is met: 1. The parent product has at least one saved child in stock. 2. The configurable product itself was updated and set as in stock and had at least one child in stock.
Inventory changes implemented through the REST API are now reflected as expected on product detail pages. The cache for catalog products is now cleaned after comparing the last and current stock statuses. Previously, omitting the callback function resulted in the incorrect evaluation of stock status changes, which did not trigger the necessary cache cleaning. As a result, the storefront did not reflect the inventory changes.
Products that are assigned to default stock and were previously out of stock are now visible on the storefront after the source item is updated using
/V1/inventory/source-items. Previously, this REST API endpoint set the wrong
Unassigning inventory sources through bulk action (Catalog > Products > Select Products > Actions - Unassign Inventory Source) now works as expected when sources include SKUs that are duplicates except for a leading zero (for example,
1234). Previously, the application did not unassign inventory sources and threw an error.
Product stock status is now always in stock on the storefront when infinite back orders are enabled and the product is assigned to a custom stock, regardless of the quantity backordered. Previously, products went out of stock even when back orders were enabled.
Configurable product parent and child product stock is now updated correctly after the source item is updated with
POST /V1/inventory/source-items. After the child product is updated through the API, a new Inventory plugin for default stock checks and updates configurable product quantity and status.
Out-of-stock grouped products are no longer listed on the storefront Category page.
Corrected the package name in
Back order status is now correctly represented in the Admin after placing an order with zero quantity product in a multi source/stock deployment. GitHub-33756
Out-of-stock bundle products are no longer displayed on the storefront Category page when the bundle product is updated from the stocks section.
Compatibility issues with PHP 7.4 are resolved.
The performance of save operations that include bundle products that contain many options (several 100) is improved. Previously, saving these large bundle products took several minutes and sometimes resulted in timeouts in deployments with Inventory services enabled. GitHub-34732
The product bulk action tool (Select Products > Actions > Assign Inventory Source) now works as expected when assigning inventory source to multiple products when SKUs are duplicated except for a leading
0 (for example,
1234). Previously, only one product was assigned an inventory source. GitHub-35171
ProductInterface.only_x_left_in_stock field now returns 0 if inventory is 0. Previously, it returned null. GitHub-29932
The category list product count is now correct when using inventory single-source mode with the Display Out-Of-Stock Products setting enabled. A new plugin now uses
StockConfigurationInterface to determine the total number of products. Previously, the category product list returned the wrong product quantity.
Configurable products are now moved to the last position in the product listing after stock is updated when the Move out of stock to the bottom setting is enabled. A new custom database query is implemented to negate Elasticsearch index sort order, which disregards Admin-enabled sort order. Previously, configurable products and their child products were not moved to the bottom of the list when this setting was enabled.
Inventory Management 1.2.4 (module version:
magento/inventory-metapackage = 1.2.4) is supported with version 2.4.4 and compatible with version 2.4.0 of Adobe Commerce, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure, and the Magento Open Source code base.
Commerce now displays an accurate salable quantity value for all products in the Admin product list view. Previously, it displayed a blank value for salable quantity of in-stock products with SKUs that contained special characters.
Performance has improved for cart-and-checkout actions such as adding products to the cart in deployments with many (approximately 10,000) inventory sources.
bin/magento inventory:reservation:list-inconsistencies command now handles orders with partial shipments correctly even if the reservations are missed from the database and the cache has been cleared. Previously, when this command was executed with a pre-cleared cache, Commerce displayed the following error:
Area code is not set.
Incremental indexing of grouped product child products no longer causes other grouped products to be incorrectly indexed when children are shared.
The storefront category page now displays the correct product count after removing a product from a category by API. Previously, the category page product count was incorrect until reindexing occurred.
Configurable products can now be returned to stock when creating a credit memo when the Manage Stock option is disabled. Previously, Commerce did not display the Return to stock checkbox on the credit memo creation page when this option was disabled.
Management of Inventory stock that exceeds 10,000 items has improved. Previously, performance issues sometimes prevented merchants from editing stock in the Admin before launching their website.
The User Roles page in the Admin is updated to provide administrators with restricted permissions access to the delivery methods configuration. The Shipping methods section has been renamed to Delivery methods, and In-Store Pickup is moved under the Delivery methods section. GitHub-30053
Adobe Commerce no longer creates a duplicate product reservation after a credit memo is updated by API.
Saleable product quantity and in-stock product quantity are now synced correctly. Previously, inventory reservation compensation was not recreated for canceled orders.
The performance of the validator is optimized to prevent adding new source to a bundled product’s child product with shipment type
Inventory Management 1.2.3 (module version:

Increased test coverage. New functionality is covered with automated tests, including extended coverage for discovered and fixed issues.
Known issue. The absence of the
object_id field in the reservations metadata is preventing the
inventory_cleanup_reservations cron job from working properly. This issue was introduced in magento/inventory#3046.
Workaround: Execute the following MySQL queries to manually clean up reservations:
SELECT GROUP_CONCAT(reservation_id) FROM inventory_reservation GROUP BY stock_id, sku HAVING SUM(quantity) = 0; DELETE FROM inventory_reservation where reservation_id IN (result_of_the_first_query);
Inventory Management 1.1.6 (module version:

Resolved issue to correctly save quantity for configurable product children when entering quantities during product creation.
New modules for Inventory Management 1.1.2 Beta include:
'Magento_InventoryGraphQl' => 1, 'Magento_InventoryReservations' => 1, 'Magento_InventoryReservationsApi' => 1, 'Magento_InventoryReservationCli' => 1, 'Magento_InventoryExportStock' => 0, 'Magento_InventoryExportStockApi' => 0,
Added a Bulk Partial Stock Transfer Endpoint - Current bulk transfer endpoints move all assigned quantity from an origin to a destination source. The new
/rest/V1/inventory/bulk-partial-source-transfer endpoint allows merchants to transfer partial stock from source to source as a bulk operation. To transfer a specific amount of quantity, enter a request to the endpoint with the
destination_source_code. Transfers verify that the source is assigned to the
sku, enough quantity exists to transfer, and so on. See Inventory mass actions in the REST API documentation.
Added Reservation CLI - New commands give you options to detect and resolve reservation inconsistencies. As orders submit and change status, Inventory Management generates initial reservations and updates through compensation reservations. These commands return a list of detected inconsistencies by Order ID, SKU, and Stock ID and create reservations to resolve. See the CLI reference for more information.
Performance improvements for sources and SSA options - Sorting and selecting sources during shipment caused performance degradation for stocks with high numbers of sources. This release provides significant performance improvements to list and sort available sources when reviewing and selecting SSA options in shipments.
Added GraphQL support for Inventory Management - This release installs a new
magento/module-inventory-graph-ql module. The GraphQL ProductInterface attributes now includes the
stock_status attributes for Inventory Management support.
Simplified UI for Assigned Sources - The Assigned Sources table in product pages has simplified content for easier updates and increased performance when displaying many sources. All sources list by source name (hover over for
Export Aggregated Stock Service - This release provides a new export-aggregated stock service (retaining reservations in the system) to support external Sales Channels, such as Amazon, eBay, and Google Shopping ads.
Inventory Management 1.1.0 (module version:
inventory-composer-metapackage = 1.1.0) is supported and compatible with version 2.3.0 of Adobe Commerce, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure, and the Magento Open Source code base. Inventory Management 1.1.1 is released only as a package name update, supported for version 2.3.1 and compatible with version 2.3.0 of Adobe Commerce, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure, and the Magento Open Source code base.
Added support for Elasticsearch for single and multi-source modes — You can now configure and use Elasticsearch with custom stocks. See Set up Elasticsearch service for installation information.
Resolved performance issues with Default Stock to drastically increase performance with numerous operations. Improvements increase performance for single-source mode, Transfer Inventory to Source, Storefront Category pages, and Salable Quantity calculations.
Resolved issues with Out of Stock status and bulk Inventory Transfer to Stock for configurable and grouped products. Selecting the parent products and performing bulk actions does not affect the product status. If the parent product was In Stock, it remains In Stock.
Distance Priority Algorithm — The Distance Priority Algorithm is a new, out-of-the-box Source Selection Algorithm for distance-based shipping recommendations. This algorithm compares the location of the shipping destination address with source locations to determine the closest source to fulfill shipments. The distance may be determined by either physical distance or the time spent traveling from one location to another, using imported geocode location data or Google directions (driving, walking, or bicycling).
Expanded source quantity list — Merchants with a high number of sources can easily hover and view all sources per product through the Product Grid. Each product displays a minimum of five sources and matching quantities. When hovering over the sources, you can scroll through the entire list of sources and current quantities.
Known issue with Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce v2.3.1 - Asynchronous migration of data between sources encounters issues due to changes in Asynchronous APIs with topic names reflecting PHP class and method names. Using synchronous operations, setting Run asynchronously to
No, is recommended.
