2577756 - Fields not Showing up While Opening the Metadata for a Custom Odata


You created a Custom OData to Import Data via Data Workbench and while downloading the metadata you noticed that some fields you selected for a Sub-Object/Sub-Collection are missing.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Data Workbench Workcenter;
  2. Import Tab;
  3. Select Individual Objects;
  4. Search for the Custom OData that you created;
  5. Select the object created;
  6. And then click on Download Metadata;
  7. You will see that some fields are missing.


This is the expected system behavior.


While creating a Custom Odata for a Sub Collection/Sub Object you will find the required fields with the name of the Sub Collection + Custom OData.

For example: You have created the Custom OData 'ABC' using the sub collection Service Request Party for Tickets. If you open the Metadata of Tickets | ABC, it will not show the fields selected in the Sub Collection, you have to open the Sub-Object "ServiceRequestParty | ABC" (ABC represents the name of the Custom OData).
