Initialise date value

Hi ,

Please advise how to read date value and initialise to a variable in the flow.

Date fields are ‘Date Only’ data types in CDS .

 

when I trigger a flow getting this error message 

Error: The input body for trigger 'manual' of type 'Request' did not match its schema definition. Error details: 'String '2020-03-31T16:00:00Z' does not validate against format 'date'.'.

Hi @GReddy ,

 

Which action run failed in your flow?

You need to share the full screenshot of the flow and the run history of the flow when the flow run failed.

Please explain more details so we could better understand you and provide a workaround.

Hi @GReddy ,

 

Does the flow wouldn't trigger successfully in D365 CE when the record has a data field?

Hi Alice,

 

I have data in date fields , If I use entry date or form date in a flow it wouldn't trigger . Flow  trigger successfully if I don't use it these fields in the flow process. 

 

Note: I am able to use "created on" (Date and time data type ) field in the flow .

Hi @GReddy ,

 

For the "If I use entry date or form date in a flow it wouldn't trigger" that you mentioned?

Could you please explain it since the flow is triggered and then you enter data in the populate a Microsoft word template action.

Hi Alice,

 

When ever I use these type of data type in the flow.

flow is not working. 

My question is flow supports date only data type?
