In my last post, $select and $expand in SharePoint REST requests, I covered how to use the $select and $expand OData operators in SharePoint REST calls. In this post, I’ll cover the $orderBy and $filter operators.
I have used OData operators like $select, $filter and $expand in previous posts (REST in SharePoint) without any real explanation. This post is the first in a series that will rectify that by giving detailed descriptions of how to use OData operators in SharePoint REST requests. In this post, I’m going to explain the purpose and usage of two OData operators, $select and $expand.
