I try to create an record in the product entity with flow.
No matter what i provide for the Category name field (Name, Record ID, primary id), it results in the same problem.
The  Categoryid field is alwyas null.

Re: Problem create record in CDS with lookup field

I did not really solve this problem.

For this special case i created a Custom Entity without lookup filed.

 

This not a real solution for the problem.

 

Hoefully there will be a way to provide lookup values in dynamic content in the future.

Re: Problem create record in CDS with lookup field

Hi DA,

 

This issue can be reproduced from my side. I created a flow to create a record in CDS Product entity when an item is created in SharePoint list. When the flow ran, I got the same result with you.

It seems that there is no available dynamic content can be selected for Category name field. I opened this entity in Excel, and I found that this field need Category ID, Category name, Description. But there are no dynamic content can be selected.

Thanks for you feedback. I will report this from my side, and try to involve others to take a further investigation.
