Entity Frameworks, WebApi, JSON.Net and Serializing Circular References – Better fix

As an improvement on yesterday problem and solution, there is a simple change to the JSON.Net settings which solves this issue, just add this into Global.asax:

JsonSerializerSettings settings = new JsonSerializerSettings
    PreserveReferencesHandling = PreserveReferencesHandling.Objects,
    Formatting = Formatting.Indented
HttpConfiguration config = GlobalConfiguration.Configuration;
config.Formatters.JsonFormatter.SerializerSettings = settings;
