No data in default CDS

Hi all,

 

I'm very new to Power Apps, and I'm following the tutorials to study the Power Apps.

 

But when I use the Accounts in CDS, it shows nothing in my Power Apps, I'm not sure whether there is something I need to install or download firstly, or it's just nothing in default CDS, or my operations are wrong.

Could you please help to explain that?

 

Thanks and if you have some good learning information about Power Apps, please tell me.

If it has 3 screens, there should be one screen that you can use to create new accounts. Try to use that to create records.

Also, when you go to web.powerapps.com, make sure you are in the right environment (st the top right corner). If not, change the environment and create the app again.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi @PowerAddict ,

 

Sorry for reply late, please see the below screenshot.

 

I created a canvas based on the Account entity in my company's environment. As you can see there are 3 screens in it, but the value is blank (I changed nothing).

 

And I can't change the environment on the top right corner, is that mean that my company set the sample data to disable and I can't change it? So that I can't get the sample data using the official Account entity?

Two things:

1. If you want to try to change the environment, do that on web.powerapps.com before you create a new app and then try again.

2. If there is another environment, and you create an app there but still don't see any data, then you simply may not have data.

In that case, use the new accounts screen in your app to create new accounts (by clicking on the + sign on the 1st screen).

Let me know in case of any questions.

Hi @PowerAddict ,

 

Really thanks for your replies, I find the place to change the environment, but I find that I only have one environment.

 

And I have tried to change the entity to others, but they are all blank. So I think I may not have these sample data.

 

Thanks again.

Glad I could help! Good luck with the rest of your app! Feel free to reach out in case of any questions!
