This question often emerges in conversations with Customers. Developers give OutSystems Entity names, which can be very technical or cryptic. When these Entities are exposed to a service that Data Analysts consume, they can find it challenging to identify which data sits in which Entity.
To solve this, Hubway allows you to add an alias name to Entities.
In the Builder, go to the Project Entities tab. Click the 3 vertical dots (menu) next to the Entity and click Add Alias option.
A popup will appear. Here you can type a friendly alias name to the Entity and Save it.
The Alias name will now appear in place of the actual Entity name.
While invoking the service, the alias name should be used to make any OData call. For example, you will have to use
https://hubway.com/HW/rest/odata/sales-order/CustomerOrder instead of https://hubway.com/HW/rest/odata/sales-order/Order
