Draft Order "Reserve Items"

New Member

I see functionality was added in the Shopify admin that provides the ability to reserve the items in a draft order until a specific date. It looks like you're passing a property not outlined in the API docs like this: 

"reserve_items_until": "2020-01-31T14:00:00.000Z"

Can app developers use this param to similar effect, or is this locked down for Shopify internal use only?


If not, reserving inventory via the API would be a tremendous help in our use case, so I'd love to see this opened up to all developers.

Hey @SteveKemper ,


The "reserve_inventory_until" field of Draft Orders is only available internally when creating Draft Orders through the Shopify Admin UI. You unfortunately cannot create a new Draft Order with this field through any of the Shopify API.


As far as I know, there are no plans for taking this field from internal use only to public use anytime soon. However you can keep an eye out on the Shopify Changelogs (https://changelog.shopify.com/ and https://developers.shopify.com/changelog) to see if this feature ever gets added.
