Goal

For sold out items, there is an issue with the system determining whether to show a 404 "Page not Found", or message 'Out Of Stock':

As example, these items recently sold out:
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/75117 --> 404 Page
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/73814 --> Page loads, but as is, doesn't have the messaging we need to detect that it is sold out. It should read "Out of Stock".
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/72294 --> This one doesn't show the out of stock messaging when viewing as Google Bot.
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/72258 --> Page loads, but as is, doesn't have the messaging we need to detect that it is sold out. It should read "Out of Stock".
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/73804 --> Large and XL are still available.
https://www.<hostname>.com/product/73543 --> Page loads, but as is, doesn't have the messaging we need to detect that it is sold out. It should read "Out of Stock".

As is, we would have no way of recognizing these products as sold out using a simple site crawl as Google Bot.

Question: can Oracle create a daily file that reports on items that went out of stock the day before? We would then go into the Admin tool and mark these items as inactive the following day.
