Brightpearl customers - Please read this

For the Warewolf integration with Brightpearl, Brightpearl customers should be aware that they must 'un-allocate' orders prior to making inventory updates from Warewolf. Orders may be re-allocated once updating is complete.

Why is that?

Warewolf updates Brightpearl's 'in stock' values for SKUs at locations during stock counting. For example:

Brightpearl inventory data shows

SKU Location In stock Allocated On hand
214025RedXL A.0.1.0 10 9 1

 and is a simple calculation where on hand = in stock - allocated

In the stock count 6 are recorded at location A.0.1.0

Since in stock is 10 but 6 were recorded, Warewolf will post -4 to Brightpearl. Brightpearl will attempt the inventory update as:

SKU Location In stock Allocated On hand
214025RedXL A.0.1.0 10-4=6 9 6-9=-3

This will fail because negative on hand values are not permitted.

What should have happened is that the stock count reviewer should have un-allocated the quantity of 9 before updating Brightpearl from Warewolf.

SKU Location In stock Allocated On hand
214025RedXL A.0.1.0 10-4=6 0 10-4=6

This update would have been accepted by Brightpearl.
