    Hi guys. 


    We are kind of new in using kendo a GUI framework. We are used to use, but we decided to change it. I'll try to explain what we have to see if you can help us out.

    Our current application design is the following: Kendo for GUi. Backbone as the client MVVM framework and OData is where we get most of our data. We have an .WCF WebApi for writing stuff.


    I'm using the kendo-backbone library to integrate Kendo with Backbone. 


    Here is an example of what i'm trying to achieve:

    The problem that i'm facing is that the filter attribute that is sending to the OData endpoint, doesn't have the filter correctly formatted.

    Probably i'm missing some configuration or not using it as it should. 

    I tried to set the parameterMap in the configuration of the datasource, so i can transform the filters. But when i do that i lose the full collection's url path. (It's overriding the backbone transport?)

     If you can help me out with this issue i'll be more than helpful.


    PS: Sorry for the grammar and bad explanation :P

    Hello Santiago,


    the easiest thing you can do in that case is to assign the new properties to the passed data object and return the passed data object itself; in this way, you won't lose any existing data passed.
