2999467 - Filter "is contained in = active,inactive" on Status field from User is not working when used together with other filters - Integration Center


You have configured the filter "is contained in = active,inactive" to Status field from User entity in your integration and data is returned properly. However, if you add any other filter, the data stops being returned.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an integration starting on EmpJob (or any other entity that can navigate to User)
  2. Set up two or more filters, one being "is contained in = active,inactive" to Status field from User

  3. Go to Configure Fields tab and check that no data is being returned
  4. Go back to the filters and leave just the Status filter in there, removing all the others
  5. Data is properly returned


The database value of the Status field is "t" for active and "f" for inactive. There is a converting logic when using "active" and "inactive" in the $filter that converts these values to "t" and "f" internally, however this converting logic doesn't support parenthesis in the $filter.

When adding more than one filters, Integration Center's internal OData query will add a parenthesis in the $filter separating each filter with an AND operator:

$filter=(userNav/status in 'active','inactive' and startDate gt datetime'1900-12-01T00:00:00Z')

These parenthesis prevent the converting logic to be executed, causing the issue.


You will have to change the filter values from "active,inactive" to "t,f":

Since "t" and "f" are the same as the values from the database, they will work even if there are paranthesis in the $filter.
