“Ordinary people think merely how they will spend their time, a man of intellect tries to use it.” – Schopenhauer
I had a tricky problem where I need to select a lot of fields from an entity which was riddled with duplicates.
The oData query was bringing 1525 rows but after getting rid of the duplicates I was left with 25 rows!
OData has no distinct
So why was the OData query bringing back so many rows because there is no distinct. So the code was retrieving lots of data, it was then removing the duplicates. It was a lose/lose scenerio
- longer retrieve with more data
- more time spent on getting rid of the extra data we didn’t need
I needed to clarify is there is no way to retrieve a distinct set using OData. I looked on the internet and SDK but there is no distinct function with OData
