blank fields in ODATA webservice


i’m testing a page, that is exposed as odata webservice. it does simple insert operation on customer table. However, i noticed, when sending a blank value(fx. blank address) to NAV. the field validate trigger does not trigger? i used testfield and tried to throw an error if the field is empty.the trigger does not fire, it seems like the webservice skips blank fields.

is there a way to measure if a field is blank, when sending from webservice?

it is a must to use ODATA. therefor, SOAP cannot be used.

Which versin of NAV/BC are you using? Testfield should be triggered anyway…

i’m using 2018 and AL to develope the webservice. Using testfield as below, does not trigger it.


it seems like the field is not active.
