I've been trying to update the min sale qty field using the soap api. I can get it to update the qty and manage stock values. But can't get it to update the min sale qty or any other fields.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
    <catalogInventoryStockItemUpdate xmlns="urn:Magento"><sessionId>REMOVED</sessionId>

Does anyone know if i'm sending the wrong element name or something else i could try. I 'm hoping it's just something simple that i've missed.

The qty does update, so i know it's updating some of it.

So i ended up having to extend the api to achieve this. I have put my code into a git repo located here - https://github.com/bretto36/magento-stock-item-api-update
