IBM BlueworsLive API to provide the users with only subspaces directly linked to the a parent subspaces

Currently, IBM BlueworksLive Spaces API can only provide two alternatives for the user:

1- Include all subspaces.

2- Do not include the subspaces.

Sometimes users just want to retrieve the subspaces directly linked to the parent spaces.

This would enable business to have more control over the product.

    The get spaces API already lets you do this:

    If you have a a Space structure as follows:

    • GrandparentSpace

      • ParentSpace1

        • ChildSpace

          • GrandChilSpace

        • ParentSpace2

    Then the JSON response for the API is as what's shown below. You can use this response and parse out the top level subspaces from here.

    "name": "GrandparentSpace",
    "id": "5f6000cba0004",
    "type": "space",
