3224602 - Invalid Application ids in the Odata Query and also Update on the same throws jobReqId required, with the index 0


  • While trying to query the application entity, it also give the deleted Applications list which are not in the system anymore .
  • The Requisitions are deleted and also the applications along with it. Only if you query the Application entity those Ids are still available.
  • Performing any operation on those applications is also not allowed

Reproducing the Issue$format=json

Request :


"__metadata": {
"uri": "JobApplication(*******)"
"appStatusSetItemId" : "******"


Odata API Response:

"d" : [
"key" : null, "status" : "ERROR", "editStatus" : null, "message" : "jobReqId required, with the index 0", "index" : 0, "httpCode" : 500, "inlineResults" : null


The deleted application ids coming in the Odata Query is expected .

So it wont allow you to perform any update operation on the same as well


  1. The GET Query should have the filter applied to pull only the valid applications and remove those deleted one
  2. Add this filter (jobRequisition/deleted eq '0') if using the application entity as the source entity .
  3. This prevent the ids to be coming in the first place , so that one wont end up in trying to perform any operation on those invalid one
