How can a inventory adjustment quantity be 0?

I’m seeing an inventory adjustment with the following values, not sure how its possible:

  • from_state: “NONE”
  • to_state: “IN_STOCK”
  • catalog_object_type: “ITEM_VARIATION”
  • quantity: “0”

How is it possible for quantity to be 0? wouldn’t this just be a bogus adjustment?

I just tested this in the API, and it does allow an adjustment of 0. Following up with the inventory team to see if there’s a particular reason for allowing it, but that is probably why.

The inventory team confirmed that 0 adjustment and quantity in general is definitely possible. They mentioned a use case: doing a recount and coming out to the same value as you have on-hand would be an inferred adjustment of quantity 0.
