Method: projects.locations.catalogs.branches.products.removeLocalInventories

Remove local inventory information for a Product at a list of places at a removal timestamp.

This process is asynchronous. If the request is valid, the removal will be enqueued and processed downstream. As a consequence, when a response is returned, removals are not immediately manifested in the Product queried by products.get or products.list.

Store inventory information can only be removed using this method. products.create and products.patch has no effect on local inventories.

This feature is only available for users who have Retail placements.search enabled. Please submit a form here to contact Cloud sales if you are interested in using Retail placements.search.
