API to GET all items having supplies for a node

IBM Inventory Visibility Service does not provide an API to GET all supplies available for a node.

In our implementaion, there are hundreds of shipnodes. Also, many old items are discontinued often. If we want to do a comparison with IV for any old items having supplies, it is not possible. This would be useful to identify items having stale inventory.

How will this idea be used?

This API would be used for inventory reconciliation. When we see any issues with stale inventory - we would get a list of all items having supplies in a node with this API - and reconcile with ship node inventory to and remove any stale inventory.

    In our project, it would be good to have that kind of API to be able to compare the stock available in the original system against the stock available in IV, after a synch supply has been done or a set of adjustments for example. We opened the case TS010029153 for this purpose.

    There are requirement to maintain multiple supply buckets in IV using productClass (Good, Damaged, Display etc). In such cases, a single API to get all the supplies for 1-N item-Nodes or or node level supply list is a basic and must have requirement for store to be able to pull supply (and demand) and during the counting especially.

    With the current GET supplies API, if there are 4 supply buckets (based on productClass), the calling system will need to make 4 calls. If productClass and shipNode can atleast accept array of object, it would reduce the call from 4-1.
