Matching Records on Data Migration

Hello all - 

 

I am trying to migrate data into two different entities on a model driven app.

 

These entities have a relationship together. Entity "A" has a list of product IDs and entity "B" IS a list of product IDs. However, the data set for "A" only has about 1000 records, all of which are in the data set for "B", which has about 2000 records. The Product IDs in data set "B" have all of data set "As" product IDs intermingled in there. Is there a way to programmatically use the import wizard to pair up the existing product IDs in entity "A" with entity "B" so that i can have a link between the two?

Hi @Anonymous ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to migrate data into two different Entities within a Model-Driven app?

 

If you want to migrate data into two different Entities within a Model-Driven app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Fourm:

As an alternative solution, you could consider add a Subgrid section part within your Model-Driven form (connects to Entity A) to display the related records within Entity B as below:

Note: You could go to the CDS Entity in your PowerApps web portal, then edit your Entity form there.
