Defaulting OData response in json format

Hello All,

In my ongoing learning I came across enough learning blogs on how to create OData services , debug it  consume it etc. However at some point I was stuck in the end about how do I default my web service response to json format?

It might be very common concept for most of other learners but still could be handy for any new learner who need it as quick reference.

We have multiple ways to test/execute our OData web services. Most common platforms are through the click on ‘SAP Gateway client’ button or the Postman.

Note: Creation of Odata service are not included as we have various good material for the same.


Execution via:

Gateway client: T-code SEGW


Click on SAP Gateway Client button. It will navigate to the hub system.

At the left top side above HTTP request click on Add header button and add the below two header parameters as mentioned below with value as application/json

Content-Type for input in case we have post methods


Accept-> For the default response format


Click on execute button

Sample Get Method


Sample Post response


Execution via Postman service

Below header parameters would be need for the json format response.


Hope this helps and saves time for fellow learners.
