issues with defender API calls in Power Query (odata)

In Power Query:


Why does the first query work and the second query does not? If the field types are integer or Boolean the filter fails. Why?


Query 1 (works) :


Query = "Vulnerabilities?$filter=severity eq 'Critical' and cvssV3 eq 9.8",


Source = OData.Feed( & Query, null, [Implementation="2.0", MoreColumns=true])


Query 2 (fails) :


Query = "Vulnerabilities?$filter=severity eq 'Critical' and exposedMachines gt 0",


Source = OData.Feed( & Query, null, [Implementation="2.0", MoreColumns=true])

Hi @cnederveen ,

The field type applied to the filter can be a number, datetime, or string and the type used must match the type set in the dataset. However, Boolean type is not included in them. Could you please change Query 2 to the following form: equal to a fixed value already in the dataset and check if it works after updated?

Query = "Vulnerabilities?$filter=severity eq 'Critical' and exposedMachines eq [static value]",

Best Regards

Is exposedMachines an actual column in your source data or are you trying to run an aggregation of sorts?
