Hello @Heliooso

 

Can you give me more details?

Do you create the record using a canvas app connected to a Common data service?

Hi @analmei , 

 

Of course. Yes it is a canvas app connected to a common data service. 🙂

Hello @Heliooso , 

 

When we create records via canvas app, the owner of the record is the current user (that is running the app). 

Can you make sure you are using Common data service (current environment) connector?

Hello @analmei

Hi @analmei  

 

I don't know what plugins are running or if there are any. Where would I go looking for this ? 

 

Best regards,

Hello @Heliooso , 

 

In the Dynamics 365 organization associated to the connection go to:

Settings > Customizations > Customize the System > SDK Message Processing Steps

and filter by entity/table name

Hi @analmei  , 

 

We opted out of the Created by field and replaced it with a new window and table called Event log, we can look up everything from there. 

 

Thank you for your kind support! 

 

Best regards, 

Heliooso.
