OData $expand function using aliases in Data Virtualization

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Can the table_column names used in an $expand be shortened, i.e. an alias without changing the DV models underneath?
  • For example the call based on the virtual table and column for each JSON array $expand=v_salescard_vfk_card,v_salesasset_vfk_asset can the returned columns be named asset and card instead of v_salescard_vfk_card and v_salesasset_vfk_asset?


  • Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization (DV) 6.4
  • Odata query using $expand:
http://localhost:8080/odata4/vdb/vbl/v_salescust?$format=JSON & $filter= ID eq '12345678' & $expand=v_salescard_vfk_card,v_salesasset_vfk_asset
