Cmdlets for OData

Build 20.0.7654

UseSimpleNames Parameter (Connect-OData Cmdlet)

Boolean determining if simple names should be used for tables and columns.


Connect-OData -UseSimpleNames SwitchParameter


OData tables and columns can use special characters in names that are normally not allowed in standard databases. UseSimpleNames makes the cmdlet easier to use with traditional database tools.

Setting UseSimpleNames to true will simplify the names of tables and columns returned. It will enforce a naming scheme such that only alphanumeric characters and the underscore are valid for the displayed table and column names. Any nonalphanumeric characters will be converted to an underscore.
