    Title:
    Adding Model name at Resource Inventory
    Content:

    Hi , 

    We have a test case for which we followed the following steps: 

    1. We added an inventory type : Weight which is non serialized .

    2. We added the required inventory( Weight) in each activity . The required inventory contained the following fields :

         a) Inventory Type       b) Model        c) Quantity(for eg. 50)

    3. We added the Inventory in each resource . The resource inventory contains the fields:

         a) Inventory Type       b) Quantity ( for eg. 200)

     

    We routed the activity (enable routing by inventory considered) but non of the activities got routed with the cause shown as " field resource does not have required inventory ".

    It would be be very helpful if someone can explain me possible cause of this. 

    According to our understanding this could be because Model name is not specified while adding resource inventory . Is so how should we add  Model name at resource inventory .

    Thanks in advance .

      Hi Prashant,

      IMO if you update technician's inventory with API, then extend that with model data, if you update through screens, then extend the correspondent screen profile with that field also.
