IBM Inventory Visibility Service does not provides an API to GET all supply or demand data for an item from IBM Inventory Visibility Service in a single call (or each type), instead what is available today is you need to call per Ship Node.

    If you do not fill out the shipnode below as anything, it will show snapshot for all nodes.
