We need ability to determine this for customers browsing online so that we can give better communication to customers between inventory not being available and when fulfillment is currently not allowed at that node and therefore this API does not fit the use case in my opinion.
Alternative solutions could be to offer the information in Get Ship Nodes API which could allow regular polling to retrieve the nodes whereby fulfillment is no longer allowed and update accordingly instead of having to call each Ship Node individually via Get Ship Node Details. Another solution could be to publish an event upon change in Fulfillment Overrides flag which can then be used to update relevant systems.
When fulfillment override is enabled for an item, the user can take advantage of the "get detailed node availability by dates" API (V2) or "Get Detailed Node Availability" API (V1). The shipnodeavailability object contains an indicator why the availability is zero. It displays the safety stock withheld/configured, as well as the fulfillmentAllowed.
