we are currently using magento 2.3.5.
We want to use an external system for our stock management and therefor have to synchronize magento with it.
For the first versions of our shop we plan to only show items in stock or out of stock without managing quantities. Out of stock items should still be visible in the shop, but disabled to be ordered. Is there a way without depending on the quantities of the stock?
Any ideas how I can realize this?
If it matters: I want to update the stock status via REST API.
For your requirement I have just come up with Magent2 Pre Order Extension to order the out-of-stock items on your store when the item is not available for users in order to purchase so they can do Pre-ordering items before its arrival.
If my answer is helpful, then give me kudos and accept as solution
thank you for your answer. Unfortunately, this is not the solution I am looking for. I just want to use the status in stock or out of stock without depending on the qty of the items. As long as items are in stock they can be sold, if they are not in stock, they can't be. Quantities will be managed by an external system, as well as the setting of the status in stock or out of stock. Pre-ordering is not yet necessary.
