How to retrieve the name of a CDS choice type entity

Hello everyone,

 

I build a simple business process flow with CDS.

In CDS I build a column which called "rig name" and is Choice type.

In flow I retrieve what user input and add it to approval connector

but when I actually run the flow, it retrieve the value of rig name (488,710,XXX) rather than the actual name of the rig.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Expiscornovus,

 

Thank you for solving my problem!

 

Actually I now can see the rig name from the peek code of the trigger

it's strange that MS don't provide a dynamic content for this.
