Magento Coordinator: Eugene Shakhsuvarov


    • Work this week:
    • 1.2 Release and general updates on MSI, by Eugene Shakhsuvarov
    • Improved Stock Item configuration discussion, by Alessandro Ronchi
    • Using Sagas (#2290) for compensating reservations when something goes wrong. The option is interesting from the software design standpoint, introducing the Saga pattern to MSI to guarantee data consistency (between Order and Inventory salability quantity) in case some problems will arise while Shipment being created. By Igor Miniailo
    • MSI Quality updates, by Tom Erskinemsi-test1-5-31.png
