Hi everyone, very simple question, hoping there is an answer and not that this hasn't been implemented yet.
How do I assign an inventory item to a specific location using the API?
I have the location all set up, and when I go to hit the inventory_levels/adjust.json endpoint with the correct params (location_id, inventory_item_id, available_adjustment) I get a 404 error: Not found.
When I go to create inventory in this warehouse for this product manually via the Shopify admin, I get this message:
"Inventory can’t be edited because no variants are stocked at <your location>."
Ok, makes sense. I need to associate the variant/inventory_item/whatever with the specific location since new products are automatically associated with the default location. But there isn't an obvious way to do that with the API? When I search: "Shopify assign inventory to location with API" on Google I usually get to this page: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/locations/assigning-inventory-to-locations. This page is exactly what I need...minus the API part (most important part hehe). I find it a bit ominous that I can't immediately find some documentation about this, hoping it's implemented and just not well documented.
Thank you, let me know if you need more information.
Solved! Go to the solution
This is an accepted solution.
In a classic move, I've found the answer to my question moments after posting it.
A ways down the page there is an example section for: Connect an inventory item to a location.
Sorry for cluttering up the board, maybe this will help someone in the future.
