Bulk Update Item Inventory to absolute quantity

We have 15K items and we would like to update absolute quantities for these items in bulk.

We looked at "inventoryBulkAdjustQuantityAtLocation" mutation method. But using this we can only increase and decrease the quantity.

Please can you provide solution on how we can bulk update item inventory with absolute quantities.

Hey there, 


This decision was made some time ago, so admittedly I'm going off of memory here - but when creating the bulk inventory adjustment mutation that you've discovered we didn't add setting absolute values intentionally. 


There were several race conditions involved in bulk inventory setting, and it was very unfriendly to the platform as a whole as well. So we decided that it wasn't something that should be implemented.
