CDS Entity Lookup field type is not listed for Gallery

Hi,

I have a simple power app with browse and edit with Data source as CDS custom entity, everything works fine on the edit screen, but i can't find the field which is of look up type on the browse screen which has a gallery showing the list of records for the same entity.

 

Any thoughts on this please?

 

Thanks

Re: CDS Entity Lookup field type is not listed for Gallery

Hi @jk264 ,

Could you please share a bit more about the LookUp type filed in your Browse screen?

Do you mean that you could not find the LookUp field in your Edit form?

Do you add a LookUp filed in your CDS Entity or create a One-to-Many relationship in your CDS Entity?

 

If you added a LookUp field in your CDS Entity, then you could enable the LookUp filed within your Edit form via the following steps:

1. Select the Edit form, then click the "Edit fields" option within the right Properties tab

2. Click "Add field" option within the Pop-up Fileds panel

3. Find the LookUp filed within the available Fields list, then choose it, and click "Add" button

The GIF screenshot as below:Test.gif

 

If you add a One-to-Many relationship within your CDS Entity, the LookUp filed would be existed in the Related Entity rather than your current Entity (Primary Entity). You could not enable the LookUp filed within the Edit form which connects to your Primary Entity.

In other words. if Entity A created a One-to-Many relationship to Entity B, the generated LookUp filed would be existed within Entity B rather than Entity A.

 

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

 

More details about the Relationships in CDS Entity, please check the following article:
