2604638 - SF OData API error expanding the wfRequestNav in custom MDF entity


You are trying to expand the WfRequestNav in a custom MDF using SF OData API, but the response show an error:

  • [COE0025] unsupported feature: Expand workflow navigation from normal data is NOT supported.


SuccessFactors OData API

Reproducing the Issue

Run your SF OData API query, similar with this one:$format=JSON&$expand=wfRequestNav&$select=wfRequestNav/wfRequestId


Wrong object definitions configuration and/or wrong OData query


Our engineering team confirmed to us that this is the expected behavior (wfRequestNav can only be expanded for pending data).

Please try to use the following OData query instead:

  • /odata/v2/cust_XXX?$select=xxx$expand=wfRequestNav&recordStatus=pending

Also, make sure that your Admin Center > Object definitions of your custom entity is set with "Pending Data" equals to "Yes", example below:



  • error [COE0025] unsupported feature: Expand workflow navigation from normal data is NOT supported
  • Custom MDF entity
  • SuccessFactors OData API query in the custom MDF entity trying to get the pending data of wfRequestNav
  • Workflow pending data
