OData API - Entity PerPersonal -> Invalid Entity

Hi guys,

I'm using the OData API via SAP PI and try to read the basic employee BIZX information.

When I use the entity "User" it works fine, but as I need more information, like date of birth etc., I would like to use the entity PerPersonal. It is described in some examples in the net:

But when I do the following call in postman, I get the error message "[COE0007]invalid entity (or function) name: PerPersonal":

https://..../odata/v2/ PerPersonal?$format=json

Is the entity PerPersonal not existing anymore? How can I retrieve the additional personal data, which is not available in the "User" entity?

Thank you & best regards

Hi Sriprasad,

thank you for the quick answer. Yes, I saw some examples on the net, but when I test it, it doesn't work.

I can't see the entity PerPersonal in the OData API Data Dictionary:

The following call comes up with the error:

    "error": {
        "code": "COE_ENTITY_NOT_FOUND",
        "message": {
            "lang": "en-US",
            "value": "[COE0007]invalid entity (or function) name: PerPersonal"


Thank you & best regards
