Hi Yahya,

Organization Entity is a standard entity in CDS. Each standard entity contains a set of default fields that you can't change or delete. This is normal behavior.

I suggest that you could go through the article below which might help you on working on CDS

Hi Mona,



But Microsoft encourages use Standard Entities, and my question, if I want to create an Organization in the Standard (existing) Organization Entity, I must be able to give a name to my Organization, so how?

Hi Yahya,


On the Organization entity you can use the "Organization name" to store the name. The Full name is a calculated field available on entities, it will be automatically populated based on what you enter in the Organization name field.


Hope this helps.
