Filter query syntax error - List items in table

Hi,

I try to filter an Odata query on a Primary position that is assigned to an employee.

I used a connector with D365 Fin & Ops.

An employee can be assigned to several positions, but I only want the Primary position that he is assigned to.

The part with PersonnelNumber eq '000034' works fine! But when I try to add the primary position query, it doesn't work anymore...

Here are the tests I did:

PersonnelNumber eq '000034' and IsPrimaryPosition eq 'Yes'

PersonnelNumber eq '000034' and IsPrimaryPosition eq Yes

2020-12-15_16-19-57.png

 

Here is the field I want to filter on: it is a Yes/No checkbox field.

Just solved this one, updating this for future users to see: 

 

@Frog64 

 

This is the correct way to solve this: 

 

IsPrimaryPosition eq Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.NoYes'No'

IsPrimaryPosition eq Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.NoYes'Yes'

 

So, AnyBooleanColumnHeader eq Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.NoYes'No'

 

If you're in the US, you might have to replace 'Yes' with ’Yes’.

Hi @abm,

 

I tried but it doesn't work: An error has occurred. A binary operator with incompatible types was detected. Found operand types 'Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.NoYes' and 'Edm.Boolean' for operator kind 'Equal'.

When I look at the output of this step, here is the result: 

"IsPrimaryPosition":"Yes"

I tried:

IsPrimaryPosition eq 'true'

IsPrimaryPosition eq 'True'

IsPrimaryPosition eq 'Yes'

IsPrimaryPosition eq 'yes'

IsPrimaryPosition eq '1'

 

Does someone have an idea?

 

Thanks

Hi @Frog64 

 

Thanks for the update. If your output is 'Yes' then it should work with  IsPrimaryPosition eq 'Yes'

 

try

 

IsPrimaryPosition eq 1

I already tried but it doesn't work 😥

Hi @Frog64 

 

I don't have D365 Fin & Ops to try this. Hopefully someone from community help you soon.

 

Thanks
