product/update webhook not firing when editing inventory via CSV products import


We have a merchant who edits product inventories via importing products CSV in the 'All products' (not 'Inventory') admin panel (https://<STORE>

For some reason this does not fire any products/update webhook when only the 'Variant Inventory Qty' CSV column is edited.

Is this expected?

Bundle Kit enables businesses to easily build product kits, sync inventory of bundle and bundled products sold, and fulfill bundle orders.

Hi @ian_l 

Yes, this is expected behaviour. Inventory adjustments are not counted as product variant updates.
