MQL Entity Format

The new Entity format, also known as the MQL Entity Format, is based on the SELECT list of an MQL query. The new Entity format contains a single "attributes" property which consists of the attribute type names that appear in the "select" property. For MQL SELECT list details, refer to Metadata Query Language (MQL) .

Following is a sample Entity object in the MQL Entity Format which corresponds to the SELECT list: Name, "Object Type", "Object Id":

{

"attributes": [

{

"attributeType": {

"name": "Name",

"displayName": "Name",

"type": "SYSTEM_ATTRIBUTE"

},

"value": "PurchaseOrder"

},

{

"attributeType": {

"name": ""\"Object Type\""",

"displayName": "Object Type",

"type": "SYSTEM_ATTRIBUTE"

},

"value": "Table"

},

{

"attributeType": {

"name": ""\"Object Id\""",

"displayName": "Object Id",

"type": "SYSTEM_ATTRIBUTE"

},

"value": "69585_200"

}

]

}

 

Every legacy Entity property can be mapped to an MM system attribute. Here is the mapping between the legacy Entity properties and MM system attributes.
