Is it possible to update a CDS lookup field based on a CDS text field?

Is it possible to update a CDS lookup field based on a CDS text field?  I tried doing this but keep getting the error "Bad Request".

 

My flow goes as follows:  When a CDS record is created--> Update CDS record.  Then I update the lookup field ("TestLookupField") based on the text field ("Current Situation").

Re: Is it possible to update a CDS lookup field based on a CDS text field?

Hi @TG2019 ,

 

If you want to update the Lookup column, we need to configure this field using the Entity Id in Related entity.

For example, if there is a Lookup column in Entity A that is associated with the field in Entity B, then we need to update the Lookup column with the Entity Id of Entity B containing the corresponding field value.

Please take a try.
