Current behavior

When I try use $expand=data/reference-field or $expand=data/reference-field/iv the referenced data is not expanded and I get the reference identifier.

Expected behavior

I expect the data to be expanded and instead of the reference identifier the referenced entity data should be returned like MS OData does in WebAPI. More details can be found here https://docs.microsoft.com/pl-pl/aspnet/web-api/overview/odata-support-in-aspnet-web-api/using-select-expand-and-value

No, I only OData for the filters because I did not want to write my own parser. But you get this feature with GraphQL
