I have external Data source that provide REST services used for mobile application and I want to manage this datasource from inside ABP solution Ex: https://api.backendless.com/{APIkey}/{app key}/data/Merchant and I want to implement some screens inside ABP that consume these REST services and use ApplicationService and crud features in CrudAppService

that can't be done without using a class that implement IEntity which I can't do as the data is not in ABP database

what should I do

    don't use CrudAppService if you don't have an entity. you need to create normal AppService

    public class MyAppService : ApplicationService, IMyAppService
    {    
        public async Task DoWorkAsync(DoWorkInput input)
        {
             await _yourWebService.DoWorkAsync(input.myValue);
        }
    }

    Yes but in that Case I lost a lot of powerful functionalities that CrudService provide .

    My question is how can I use most of its functionalties like paging ,sorting , filtering ,..

    There is a solution is to build a service like crud service but without the required params for Entities

    I'm asking if there is something already existed that can help

    there's no way to use CrudService without an IEntity derivation. you need to make paging sorting filtering manually
