Power Automate & Dynamics: Update a record

My new flow is failing.  I want to update a field in an Opportunity.  What goes in the Record Identifier field?  This must be where the problem lies...

Re: Power Automate & Dynamics: Update a record

Hi @draushaus 

 

Yes you are passing the wrong value into Record Identifier

 

You need to pass the Unique ID. This ID looks like the entity name minus plural.

 

Example: Opportunities entity will have a unique ID of Opportunity

 

if you do not know the ID you will have use List record action and use a filter to get the ID to pass into the Update record action

Re: Power Automate & Dynamics: Update a record

Thank you!  Inserting 'Opportunity' in there did get me past the error.  Unfortunately, it still doesn't update the record.  I'm wanting this to turn off a flag in Opportunities, but it's still on.   (I think I need a good Power Automate tutorial from somewhere).
