OData query to ProjectData: $expand RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello again with other Odata question,

    This time is to ask about the $expand function in the Reporting database (_api/ProjectData). I know that is not a supported function, what I really don´t understand. My question is not WHY is not supported, but: Will it be supported in a early future in the ProjectData endpoint??

    Many thanks!

  • Miguel,

        This is an excellent question - one that I would like to know the answer to myself.

    The only guidance I have been able to find thus far is at the end of this article.

    The ProjectData service does not implement the $links query option or the $expand query option. Excel 2013 internally uses the Association elements and the AssociationSet elements in the entity data model to help create associations between entities, for pivot tables and other constructs.

    I think implementing these keywords would at least go some of the way to addressing some of the problems with Project Online reporting.
