Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-263) Remove $select=*

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-263?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=32597#action_32597 ] 

Michael Pizzo commented on ODATA-263:

The thing we lose by dropping select=* is an easy way to select all properties of a type (including open properties) but exclude navigation properties and actions/functions.

> Remove $select=*
> ----------------
>                 Key: ODATA-263
>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-263
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData ABNF Construction Rules, OData URL Conventions 
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_WD01
>         Environment: [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl
>             Fix For: V4.0_WD01
> The URL conventions state that 
>     If the selectItem is a star, then all properties and navigation properties on the matching resources MUST be returned.
> This conflicts with the JSON format which by default does not return navigation properties and only includes them when odata.metadata=full is requested.
> The recent enhancements to $expand which allows nesting e.g. a $select further reduces the need for $select=*, so it's best to remove it altogether.
