The createItemNodeDefn call fails if the record already exists and using modifyItemNodeDefn will fail if the record doesn't exists. So when Sterling receives the safety stock details, we have to first make a getItemNodeDefn call & then invoke either createItemNodeDefn (if record doesn't exists) or modifyItemNodeDefn (if record exists). It will involve custom logic. Having manage API will simplify the process.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Having manageItemNodeDefn API, will provide the option to create/update the item node definition in a single API call.
