Ability to duplicate a CDS Entity from within Microsoft Flow

It would be great if a Flow could have an action of duplicating an entity in the Common Data Service. I would like to do repetative data transformation on information coming from a number of sources. I need an entity for each data source however the output will be exactly the same each time. It would help if at the start of the flow I could duplicate an entity so as to start with an entity that has no records in it, transform the data coming in from that particular source and then export the data and delete the duplicated entity as needed.

Re: Ability to duplicate a CDS Entity from within Microsoft Flow

Hi @amandalee,


Thanks for your feedback, duplicating an entity in the Common Data Service is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow currently, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
