The connector app provides connectivity between Advanced Item Availability and Discontinued Master Data apps, and automatically filters out any discontinued items from the Item Availability Overview and Item Availability by Item pages once the app is installed.
Comparison with and without the connector app installed
Let's take an example of an item that has been discontinued in Business Central.
Without the connector app installed, you are able filter for the Item No. on the Item Availability Overview page and the item will be displayed in the matrix.
However, you will not be able to filter for Item No. on the Item Availability Overview page with the connector app installed.
The same filter will automatically apply on the Item Availability by Item page.
