Best Practice for Modifying Reservation Logic in Dynamics 365 Business Central

Posted on by 23

Hello everyone,

I'm currently working on customizing the reservation process in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. My goal is to adjust the auto-reservation logic to ensure that it only considers available inventory from /Item Ledger Entries/ without including any quantities from /Purchase Orders in Transit/.

I've explored modifying the AutoReserve procedure, but I'm unsure if this is the best approach or if there is a specific event I should subscribe to, to achieve this.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

  1. Modify the reservation logic so that it only reserves quantities that are physically available in the warehouse as per the /Item Ledger Entries/.
  2. Ensure that if the available quantity is less than the required quantity, the system either reserves what is available or none at all, depending on the scenario.

I'm looking for advice on:

  • Which events in the reservation process would be the most appropriate to hook into for customizing this logic?
  • Are there better practices or alternative methods within Dynamics 365 Business Central to restrict reservations to /Item Ledger Entries/?

Any insights or examples of how this can be achieved would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help!
