The following error message appears when creating a new Query from SuccessFactors Connection:
- "'<object_name>' is restricted and cannot be filtered on."
- SAP BusinessObjects Cloud
- SAP SuccessFactors
Reproducing the Issue
- Login to BusinessObjects Cloud.
- Create a new model from SuccessFactors Application.
- Select the connection and create a new Query.
- Add an object to the "Filters" from the available data.
- Notice the error message.
- In the OData API it is specified, that the selected object is not filterable:
- sf:Filterable / sap.filterable is set to ”false”
- I.e: Check "Institution" in "OData API Entities" menu in SuccessFactors (SF Admin right is needed).
The behavior is by design:
- Since the filterable property of the objects is set to false in the metadata, it cannot be used in BusinessObjects Cloud for filtering.
- The filterable property can not be changed directly from the $metadata.
