2933053 - OData Query returns empty result set in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When connecting SAC to an oData datasource the following error is displayed on trying to import the data

  • Failed Upload : The dataquery returns empty result set.



  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.12.20


Looking at the $metadata for the query it returns a property:


Looking through the SAC help documentation ( it lists specifics for paging capabilities being returned by the oData service:

  • Support paging based on $top and $skip.
  • Should have the ability to return 1000 data rows per request, but if it doesn't, it must implement the “nextLink” function.
  • The order of the data rows in the data source needs to be fixed during data acquisition (for example, by sorting on a column). Otherwise, when paging is done, there could be data correctness issues. For example, the same data row could appear more than once in different pages.
  • The order of data rows should be guaranteed on data source during paging by $skip and $top.


  • As this oData service does not support paging it will not be supported in SAC. 
  • Talk to the administrators of the oData service to see if the underlying data structure allows this property to be set to true.
