Feature Details - 

Integrations that query data using OData can indicate a read-only intent to read data from a secondary database replica.

Explanation -

Till Business Central 18, we can only define read-only intent either - 

  • During API Page Creation.
  • Setting Data Intent from Database Access Intent List Page.

With Business Central 19, Data intent can also be set during call to API by specifying the Data-Access-Intent: Read-only.

While using Read-only Intent the speed of read will be faster in case of bulk reading.

  • Integrations that consume data through OData from Business Central can indicate a read-only intent to use a read-only database replica. 
  • Indicating read-only intent is done by setting a request header on the OData call.
  • This will offload read-only queries from the primary database and give more read capacity for integrations that read large amounts of data.

How to ?

Get With Read-Only

Post with Read-Only will end up an Error Message.

Error Message

Hope you learn and will be able to utilize this feature as Business Central 19 is available.
