Request error with WCF Data Services

entity-framework odata wcf-data-services

Question

Its my first time setting up an OData Service and I'm of course having some problems...

The problem is that I can't get the service running, I keep getting an "Request Error". Request Error

I have researched on what the problem can be and I found that a common issue is that the access rules are incorrectly typed. So I have tried fixing this both with Singular names, Plural names and I have also tried with typeof(Post).getType().Name

Well here is my code. I hope you can help me, I've been stuck for hours.

public class ODataService : DataService<Entity>
{
    // This method is called only once to initialize service-wide policies.
    public static void InitializeService( DataServiceConfiguration config )
    {
        //config.SetEntitySetAccessRule( "Users", EntitySetRights.All );
        //config.SetEntitySetAccessRule( "Posts", EntitySetRights.All );
        //config.SetEntitySetAccessRule( "Albums", EntitySetRights.All );


        config.SetEntitySetAccessRule( "*", EntitySetRights.AllRead );
        config.SetServiceOperationAccessRule( "*", ServiceOperationRights.AllRead );
        //config.SetServiceOperationAccessRule( "GetPosts", ServiceOperationRights.AllRead );

        config.UseVerboseErrors = true;
        config.DataServiceBehavior.MaxProtocolVersion = DataServiceProtocolVersion.V2;
    }

    [WebGet]
    public IQueryable<Post> GetPosts()
    {
        return CurrentDataSource.Posts.AsQueryable();
    }
}

Accepted Answer

WCF Data Services team confirms - this is the exact error faced when you use Enums (which is not yet supported).

Remove the Enum types (or use their suggested work-around and use a wrapper around the enum properties) and this should go away.
