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:
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.

This is an accepted solution.
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.

I think this field is necessary to make the Draft Order API usefull. Most use cases will need to hold inventory, thats the whole point of a draft order. Any news on this topic?
I'd like to be able to put a 'Reserve' sign on products that I've reserved through a draft order. If the field is only accessed internally, does that mean I can't use it to add the 'Reserved' image? I'm not so tecchy, but would love to be able to do this. Thanks
