    oData inline association support(SharePoint)

    Bryan Mathews

      I use connections to SharePoint for oData feeds and there are 2 field types in SharePoint which allow multiple selection.  These multiple selection fields do not return values in the <m:properties> but rather in an <m:inline> as part of the <link> to the field, this is part of the oData spec here:

       

      Atom Format | Open Data Protocol | ODataOpen Data Protocol | OData

       

      It seems Tableau does not recognize or read any m:inline entries.

       

      Since there is no other representation of the value in those fields, I am forced to write a workflow to write the values of the fields into a text field so Tableau can read this. 

       

      Are there any plans to more fully support the oData spec?
