2921388 - Goal Entity not found through API Call


When querying Goal Data through API Call you receive the following error.

"Error message--> Entity Goal_1 is not found. An error occurred while resolving entity Goal_1 due to internal error."

Also, searching in the Integration Center, the Goal_1 Entity is not available, however, the Goal Plan with the ID 1 is active, the permissions are properly set and even this, it does not show in the Goal Entities Available.

In order to correct this issue is necessary to run the OData API Metadata Refresh and Export  following the steps below:

  2. Company Settings > OData API Metadata Refresh and Export
