1975713 - Open Data Protocol (OData) Support for C4C / ByD Analytics

Symptom

The Open Data Protocol (OData) service (/sap/byd/odata) for the solution returns Analytics data available to the logon user. Reports that are available in the Reports work center view of the work centers assigned to the logon user can be retrieved. You can also retrieve the characteristics and key figures of reports.
