OData Server Architecture

The SAP Sybase OData Server consists of the OData Producer and an HTTP server.

The OData Server consists of: OData client requests are sent to an HTTP server through URIs, and are processed by the OData Producer, which then interfaces with the database server to issue database requests and retrieve content for the OData responses.

The OData schema for each client is based on the client's database connection permissions. Clients cannot view or modify database objects for which they do not have view permission.

You can grant client access to the database using a preconfigured connection string or basic HTTP authentication.
