    There is no F4 concept as such in OData world. However to create F4 like feature, you may create another Entity that will show the F4 values. There are also some annotations to inject F4 specific information. These annotations are understood by SAP UI5 Smart controls and the F4 is automatically rendered out of the box by UI5.

    You can have a look into this example SAPUI5 Explored

    The OData metadata behind this app can be found at

    Hello Pervesh,

    You can import Elementary Search help as data source and can perform Read/Query Operations accordingly.

    Please have a look at the below ->
