Is there anyway wherein i can get only count of the data in response payload without any value array. I am using ODataV4.0 with Webapi 2.2. Currently it returns all the values and count when i query something like: http://odata/People?$count=true
I just need something like "@odata.count":1, "value": or without "value".
Is the only way to have function for this job?
Best How To :
Set the $top to zero and $count to true.
For example: http://services.odata.org/V4/Northwind/Northwind.svc/Customers?$count=true&$top=0
returns the count but no results
Count is calculated after applying the $filter, but without factoring in $top and $skip.
For example: http://services.odata.org/V4/Northwind/Northwind.svc/Customers?$count=true&$top=0&$filter=Country%20eq%20%27Germany%27
informs you that there are 11 results where the Country is 'Germany', but without returning any records in the response.
