I am unable to reate a field group (as described here) for a custom entitiy that I just created. The [New field group] button is missing (next to the Search box?). Am I doing something wrong?
I found that we can create a filed group by following steps, hope it could be a reference for you:
1. Open an entity.
2. Click the Field Groups tab, select e.g. Default Lookup, then select fields from “Entity Fields”, the entities you selected will be shown on the Default Lookup Fields.
3. Click the Save Entity button, the field group would be created.
Thanks for your feedback. It seems that there are some updates on CDS, I guess that documentation updates will be coming soon. And I will also collect and report this issue from my side.
I have some updates for you.
As there are some updates on Common Data Service, currently only Default field groups are being used. These get created automatically for standard entities you cannot edit them. For custom entities you can edit them but you cannot create new field groups.
The documentation you provided will be updated soon. Please keep an eye on it and I guess it will be updated after some time.
The documentation has been updated. Please check it at here for more details:
About creating a field group, default field groups are automatically created when you create an entity. Creating additional field groups isn't currently supported.
