Business value

Developers of Business Central web service endpoints can use ByRef and XmlPort parameters in OData unbound actions.

Feature details

SOAP web services support codeunits that expose procedures with parameters defined by reference and parameters of type XmlPort.

Until this release, neither of these types was supported in the OData stack. By adding support for these parameters, partners find better parity with the SOAP stack for OData, and the migration from SOAP becomes easier.
