The query operation is the method for creating a guided query against an entity. The select statement in the request enables you to specify the selection criteria, entity properties, sort order, and pagination. It is similar to a pared down SQL query select statement with constraints in place to ensure the request doesn’t overload server-side resources. As such, the following are query operation limitations:
- The response set always returns all properties for each object. That is, projections are not supported.
- Only those properties with values are returned in the response set.
- Wild card character support with LIKE clauses is limited to “%” (wildcard that substitutes for 0 or more characters).
- The OR operation is not supported in WHERE clauses.
- The GROUP BY clause is not supported.
- The JOIN clause is not supported.
Example Query :
Select Statement = SELECT * | count(*) FROM IntuitEntity
SELECT * FROM Invoice WHERE id in ('64523', '18761', '35767') AND MetaData.CreateTime >= '1990-12-12T12:50:30Z' AND MetaData.LastUpdatedTime <='1990-12-12T12:50:30Z'
