2732213 - ODATA Query for Report and Data Sources Fetches Only 50 Records


ODATA query for report and data sources fetches only 50 records.


  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

You tried to fetch data from a report or data source using an Odata query, but the result is restricted to 50 entries.


There is a restriction for the records fetch in ODATA to be 50 to avoid memory timeout. Hence an ODATA query for a report or data source will not fetch more than 50 records.


You can bypass this limitation using the $top or $skip option. The $top=n where n is a number option specifies that only the first n records will be returned. Hence if you specify the $top=100 will return the first 100 entries. This might end up in a timeout for larger values for $top.
