3094718 - Error in OData Metadata Query for Reports


When running an OData reporting metadata query, such as:

You receive an error message or the page does not finish loading.

This query returns the metadata of every single report in your system. In most cases, this will lead to a memory issue, since there are too many reports with too many fields.


If you require to see report metadata, please run the query for a specific report, for example:

https://my<insert system URL>/sap/c4c/odata/ana_businessanalytics_analytics.svc/$metadata?entityset=RPCODCUSTOMER_Q0001QueryResults

Alternatively, you can run the metadata query for a different work center (not Business Analytics) if there are no too many reports assigned to that work center. For example:

https://my<insert system URL>/sap/c4c/odata/cod_activities_analytics.svc/$metadata
