Hey @jayeshbhatia 


Unavailable inventory refers to the number of units that are reserved for draft orders, set aside by apps, or other inventory hold reasons, such as damaged, quality control, or safety stock. This isn't directly adjustable via the API.

So apps just adjust the unavailable count through osmosis? Or do apps use the API to adjust that number?
