An Inventory Item represents the physical good available to be shipped to a customer. It holds essential information about the physical good, including its SKU and whether its inventory is tracked. There is a 1:1 relationship between a product variant and an inventory item. Each product variant includes the ID of its related inventory item. You can use the inventory item ID to query the Inventory Level resource to retrieve inventory information. Use the Inventory Item resource together with the Inventory Level and Location resources to manage a store’s inventory across multiple locations.
The Inventory Items pipeline can be used to request and retrieve details of the inventory items from the shopify platform. Read more about this here
