When the $filter=entityId in (entityId1, entityId2, entityIdN) format is used to get entity information, a collection of Atom Entries is returned as part of an Atom feed. For more information about these Atom response formats, see OData AtomPub Format and the Atom examples in the Examples section.

When the output format is JSON, the response format for both type of requests is a collection of JSON Entries in a “results” container. For more information about the JSON response format, see OData: JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Format and the JSON examples in the Examples section.
