Inventory List and Product Inventory Records

The inventory.xsd file defines how to structure the XML file that transmits inventory data to Salesforce B2C Commerce.

The following code block defines the Inventory List record. The inventory.xml file can contain 0 or more inventory lists.

<xsd:complexType name="complexType.Header">
<xsd:sequence>
<xsd:element name="default-instock" type="xsd:boolean" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" /> #Always include a value for the default product availability flag.
    <xsd:element name="description" 
        type="simpleType.Generic.String.4000" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" /> #Optional description field of up to 4000 characters.
</xsd:sequence>
<xsd:attribute name="list-id" type="simpleType.Generic.NonEmptyString.256" use="required" /> #Required list ID of up to 256 characters.
   <xsd:attribute name="mode" type="simpleType.ImportMode" use="optional" /> #Optional import mode.
</xsd:complexType>
<xsd:complexType name="complexType.InventoryRecords"> #The list can contain 0 or more inventory records.
    <xsd:sequence>
        <xsd:element name="record" type="complexType.InventoryRecord" 
            minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" />
    </xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>

The following code block defines the associated Product Inventory Records. The allocation, perpetual, preorder-backorder-handling, preorder-backorder-allocation, in-stock-date, ats, on-order, turnover, and custom-attribute fields of an inventory record are optional. However, product IDs are required.
