Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (ODATA-818) Omit properties whose value is null or the $metadata-defined default value

     [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-818?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Michael Pizzo updated ODATA-818:

    Environment: Simplified Payload [Proposed]  (was: Simplified Payload)
1) Add a new preference "odata.omit-values" (or just "omit-values") which can have the value "nulls" or "defaults".
2) if clients specify "omit-values=nulls" the service MAY omit null values and SHOULD (MUST?) specify the preference-applied response with the "omit-values=nulls" response
3) If clients specify "omit-values=defaults" the service MAY omit defaults or nulls but MUST include the preference-applied response header specifying which is applied.
4) If the client specifies odata.metadata=none (or doesn't specify a metadata level and doesn't specify an OData-MaxVersion header) the service is free to omit nulls
5) Nulls and defaults are always included if changed in delta responses
6) Missing values in a PUT or POST are assumed to be default (current behavior). Missing values in PATCH are assumed to be untouched (current behavior).  The response to a POST must include any values not set to their default. The response to a PUT/PATCH operation must include any properties whose values were changed as part of the operation.
7) Services are always allowed to include nulls and defaults, regardless of the metadata level or preference specified.

>         Environment: Simplified Payload [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl

>              Labels: Performance
>             Fix For: V4.01_WD01
> Entities with many properties that are sparsely filled would benefit from optimizing the payload and omitting properties whose value is null.
> With odata.metadata=minimal the client can deduce from the context URL whether a property is missing due to not being part of the projection or due to being null.
> Maybe switch this on/off via a new preference in the Prefer header.
