Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (ODATA-1064) Add ability to annotate collections to return only count and NextLink

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-1064?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=67800#comment-67800 ] 

George Ericson commented on ODATA-1064:

Preference would be IncludeMetadata, but OK with other choices.

>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Vocabularies
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_CSD01
>         Environment: System with entities containing multiple large collections
>            Reporter: George Ericson
>            Assignee: George Ericson
>              Labels: Proposed, request_tc_discussion
>             Fix For: V4.0_CSD02
> Issues with NavigationProperty
> 1)	If AutoExpand or AutoExpandReferences is not specified, then a GET without $expand or $ref query parameters will not return any representation of declared NavigationProperties.
> 2)	If AutoExpand or AutoExpandReferences is specified, the concern is that the returned representation of the containing entity might be too large.
> 3)	For an EntityType containing many NavigationProperties, it is difficult to specify the desired information using query parameters.
> The Redfish specification attempts to solve these issues by introducing an intermediate resource that contains the original collection as a Members collection. The intermediate resource is then referenced via a NavigationProperty with AutoExpandReferences.  The new resource is required to return $count as a metadata property of the Members collection.  The value is the size of the original collection.
> For the most part, this is successful, but the solution creates several new problems.
> 1)	Redfish specifies that a POST to the intermediate resource is equivalent to doing a POST to the contained collection.  This is not conformant.
> 2)	Introduction of many intermediate resources makes the resulting model more complex.
