2193247 - How to import Self Associated Navigations in Boomi for OData entities

Symptom

When we import the profile in Boomi, we will not be able to see certain self-associations in the import profile.

For Example:

  1. We need to query ParentPosition in SFOData.Position

      2.  We import the profile in Boomi.

      4.  When we check the Data Dictionary we can see that ParentPosition is present.

Environment

Cause

Note:

  1. Use Comma to separate the associations to filter.
  2. Spelling of the names should be in a proper manner to filter the association’s traversal, it is always advised to copy them from the data dictionary.
