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.
