2661134 - Custom MDF object not appearing in OData API Data Dictionary


  • You have created a 'child' custom MDF Object
  • The API visibility is set to 'Editable'
  • API Sub-version is set to v1.0
  • You then perform the OData API Metadata Refresh
  • But the entity still does not appear in the OData API Data Dictionary




Configuration Issue


If the visibility of the Parent object is set to- 'API Visibility: Not Visible', the child object will also be skipped and will not be visible in the 'OData API Data Dictionary'.
So either the object should be standalone or it's parent should also be 'visible' for a 'child' custom object to appear under OData API data Dictionary
