OData Adapter

The OData (Open Data Protocol) adapter provides support for performing read and write operations on data sources that expose OData interface. OData adapter is an ISO/IEC approved, OASIS standard that defines a set of best practices for building and consuming RESTful APIs.

OData adapter provides support for connecting to a compliant OData service, discovering entity sets exposed by the services and importing entity definitions in form of native JSON schemas. The adapter further supports fetching entities in managed mode, where the entity data complies with the imported schemas, as well as in raw mode where the OData service is accessed directly and the exchanged data is not constrained and validated by the adapter-provided schema. The adapter also supports inserting new entities into the specified entity set.
