Help with odata filter usage



i am trying to get data from dynamics NAV via odata. I am able to retrieve data from our test system, but I have several questions regarding the usage of odata in power bi.


1. I need to get data from different odata web services (projects, work_orders, sales_orders and projectplan). The projects odata service  is already filtered and delivers round about 20-30 project numbers which should be a parameter for the calls of the other odata services. How can I achieve this?

If I simply get all data from the work_order oder sales_order odata service the call takes to way much time, so I want to filter the call in the odata url.


2. How can I call the odata feeds sequentially? First I need the project numbers, then decide for which project I want to get the other data and then call the next odata service with the correct filter applied. How can I do this? Or is it even possible?


best regards!

Thank you for your answer, but the offical blogs do not help here. I am already able to create the data source, but I do not know how to filter it dynamically based on values from another data source. The blogs do not answer that.

Hi @jjak ,


I hope the offical blogs could help you solve your issue.
