    Urgent:How to connect to odata service url instead of odata resource path url!!

    manasa parida

      I am trying to connect to remote DWH schema via OData url

      I have given the service url along with credentials say:

      http://<myhost>:<myport>/api/odata/schema

       

      It says "Bad Odata request.Make sure you are using a  URL that points to a valid Odata source".I have checked the logs, there is no specific detail saying why this odata url isnt working.But I can access the url in browser.

      I have already gone through couple of links for the above error.

      https://community.tableau.com/thread/113748

      https://community.tableau.com/message/272035#272035

      I am using odata v2 which matches with tableau requirement.

       

      I tried again with odata url till resource path

      http://<myhost>:<myport>/api/odata/schema/resource

      it is successful.

       

      So cant we connect directly to odata service url like in powerbi etc?

      How can be build report when I want to connect to schema through Odata. Do I have to create multiple Odata connections for each table and then generate the report.
