APIkit for OData

APIkit supports OData (Open Data Protocol) versions 2.0 and 4.0 to create HTTP-based data services.

APIkit builds the services from the entity data model (EDM), which OData services use to formalize their resource descriptions.

APIkit for OData generates Mule flows to manage OData requests. You can use APIkit for OData to, for example, expose a legacy API as an OData API, orchestrate data before exposing it in Salesforce, or create a bidirectional OData API for Oracle, DB2, or Azure DB.

API Console does not support OData APIs.
