    Hi,

    OData feeds can be used in a similar manner to the one illustrated in the Connecting Telerik Reporting to OData feeds blog article. In general, the data is actually retrieved with custom logic, and is used in the report via an ObjectDataSource.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Hi,

    We have already made it working with the OData V3 service. Its because the client consuming OData V4 has to be created using template 4, the report designer does not bring in the objectdatasource.

    Hi,
    If you can tell me as how we can use the odata service created using 'Webapi for odata' in Report designer, that would be really helpful.

    Hello,

    There is no data source component that will work directly with the created service client.

    You can use the OData Client T4 template to generate the code, and then you need to consume the service. Finally you can use an ObjectDataSource component to wrap the data retrieval method, in which the service is consumed. This scenario is illustrated in the blog post I previously sent you.

    If you need further help, please open a support ticket and send us a demo project that illustrates your settings and the problem.

    Just downloaded the html5 report viewer of telerik kendo ui and it looks promising. I have done a couple of reports where i connect to SQL data sources and that is all fine.
    Thing is, that i want to consume our "NET web api odata", as it has all the data i need when designing my reports. Do you have any good examples of doing that ?
