OData query for virtual table fails (url too large)

I have set up a virtual table and an OData source for these entities but sometimes the queries the power app makes are too large to do a GET from the api. Maybe it needs to lookup 250 UIds at the same time and that is too long to put in the url for a GET.


I want to know if there is a way to make the power app POST the query instead?

My OData api supports this.

Hi @KristianDahl,


To have full control over the request being sent such as a POST instead of GET for a retrieve, you'd have to look at writing your own custom provider which would involve writing plugins for Retrieve and RetrieveMultiple messages.
