LMS ActiveInventoryReport does not return all the items I have on ebay

Hello to everyone, I am new on the forum, thanks to all for your support.

 

I'm using LMS ActiveInventoryReport to retrieve my list of active items.

The problem is that sometimes (not always) I don't get all the items the ebay website is telling me I'm selling.

 

Right now the ebay web interface tells me I have 19904 items.

The response of ActiveInventoryReport have 19900 entries.

 

I'm trying to identify what items are left behind, but the situation changes so fast that it's not easy.

 

I'm relying on this report to generate or update my listings and it happened to me to generate duplicates because of this problem.

 

And there are entire weeks where I always get the correct response from the call.

I really cannot understand what's going on.

 

Regards

Max

Hi, after a year I still have the same problem. The activeinventoryreport sometimes returns a partial number of listings. The number of listings returned is not always the same and I cannot figure out if there is a pattern. And if you change a SKU, the report returns the old SKU, at least for a couple of days (weeks?). I'm supposed to work with this data... Thanks for your help.

After the 20 attempts, I got the right number of listings. I feel like I won the jackpot. It's random!

JobID: 5393137707 (ActiveInventoryReport) Presumed number of listings (as I can see on ebay website): 23075 22682 entries in the response of the call. I tried one time before and was 22075... And at least one SKU is wrong (old SKU). I have a check for duplicate SKUs and SKU 2832 is at least one time duplicate. It shouldn't. Thanks for your time

Hi,

For the SKU : 2832 is wrongly associated with 2 different Items: 400822762588 and 260795668047 . Its definitely wrongly associated with the item : 400822762588.

I will file a bug for this? Lets first correct this SKU issue and then we can take a look at the count in the UI vs API. Can you please give us your developer account ID? So that we can work with you directly on this issue?

Cheers!!!

our developer userid is videogamecenter Now the SKU problem is gone... But the count of the listings is still giving random results. One out of ten tries I get the right number. Thanks!

JOBID 5396374967 expected number of listings: 23153 number of listings: 23153 But before I made another try (did not write down the JOBID) and it was less than 23.000. It really looks random. Later I will send you more cases. Thanks
