Custom OData Service Operations and LightSwitch 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we're using an OData Service, and implemented some service queries according to this article:

    Service Operations (ADO.NET Data Services)

    Unfortunately, these operations do not appear in the Datasource when imported into LightSwitch. Because this is an essential feature we need, I'm wondering if there is a way to get these operations into Lightswitch.

    And if it is not possible, what is the roadmap on this feature?

  • It appears Lightswitch will not let you consume custom service operations via the Datasource: LightSwitch Architecture: OData

    "There are certain OData v1.0 and v2.0 features that LightSwitch doesn’t support. These include the DataTimeOffset data type, complex types, inheritance, many-many relationships, media resources, open types, and custom service operations. Each of these has value in certain scenarios. We haven’t excluded any of these on principle or merits. It is just a matter of resources and investment to get new scenarios lit up. "
