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

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:
