After struggling to update a 30k part inventory through the dataflow modules(soo slooooooow), I am trying to work with the “cataloginventory_stock_item” table and relate it to a product sku. Is the “product_id” field the same as “entity_id” in the “catalog_product_entity” table?
roco: Curious to know if you’ve found any problems as a result of this direct update. I’m in the same boat - 30k products whose inventories change on an hourly basis due to outside mage sales. I’ll be making this edit directly and can’t imagine any issue… but figured it’s worth asking
