Cause

  • The current OData APIs are FORM PERMISSION based which means that they check the form's permissions before retrieving the data.
  • This is problematic when you are trying to build integrations because you cannot use a generic API user in the integration.
  • This functionality is not supported, until the OData APIs are updated to bypass form permissions, navigating to PM forms from formHeader entity most likely cannot be used in integrations.
