Good news: this is coming – and not just on entity types but on complex types as well. Enums are part of the OData v4 protocol. In fact, it was one of the things we argued vociferously for precisely because of the number of votes on this issue.Dave Kerr commented
Cool, great news that it's on the way.
While this ask is purely a feature ask, we currently do not generate methods on the client to call service operations. As part of the OData v4 client library, we plan to modify our code generation from using CodeDom to a T4 template. Best case scenario, in the same time frame we will make that T4 template publicly available and anyone can modify it to their heart’s content. Worst case scenario, we will either add this feature ourselves down the road or make the T4 template public as soon as we can.Dave Kerr commented
I cannot agree more, it would be very helpful to generate proxies for all service operations.
