      Hi,

      is it possible to make a batch approach  for a GET Operation in HCI? I tried it like in this blog:

      https://github.com/SAP/C4CODATAAPIDEVGUIDE/blob/master/sections/massquery.md

       

      But always get this error:

      com.thoughtworks.xstream.io.StreamException: : only whitespace content allowed before start tag and not - (position: START_DOCUMENT seen -... @1:1) , cause: org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: only whitespace content allowed before start tag and not - (position: START_DOCUMENT seen -... @1:1)

      I tried the same payload in Postman an it worked fine.
