Hi Experts,

I create a odata project with one entity and include another odata service, create association between my own entity and include model reference's entity, create association set and navigation picture below

this link works fine:


however, with this link, I get error "Entity by ID 'N2B8F050322926B2CA65BA5A590DE8B14' not found"


how to fix it?

Or include Odata service doesn't support $expand parameter?

best regards,

Hi Felix / Andre,

My requirement is exactly the same, where I have nested entities/associations in my included service( REF_SERVICE). I don't want to rebuild the whole logical connections again in my parent service(PAR_SERVICE) and hence thought of including the reference service.

Any reason why this is not supported for now. The objective of including a service is to avoid redundancy.

In such cases what should be our design approach ?

Appreciate your help & explanation.




Maybe you can look at developing OData V4 services. I understand this limitation goes away with the creation of service groups which allow component services to have cross service navigations much like the microservice architecture concept.
