Description

when publishing a data set, it is not possible to de-select primary key fields. It is often the case that surrogate primary keys are used that are not useful to display to users.

Thanks for your feedback. Since we use OData as the protocol for downloading dataset data, we have to conform to the standard and require an Identity key for each row.
