As and when inventory is replenished or depleted in NetSuite, the inventory information (quantity available) is automatically exported to Walmart, keeping both systems always in sync.
When you want to sync the inventory, run the inventory data flow from integrator.io.
The status of the data flow is visible in the integrator.io dashboard. The status color codes are:
Green: when all records are exported successfully
Red: indicates flow with errors
Partial Green, Partial Red: some records passed successfully, few failed (number of failed records is indicated in errors column). Error handling is discussed as a separate topic
The Walmart listed item is then updated with the quantity that's available in NetSuite.

The reserve changes from time to time depending on the activity done by the buyers on the website. The final quantity updated comprises of Reserve + Order generated before fulfillment+ current stock. Final Displayed Quantity is the combination of the above three parameters.
