Option Set - new option/value is not usable

I'm having issues with an Option Set field (CDS). Specifically, with the available options.


I had an Option Set field with two values. Recently, I have added a third option and my last published Canvas app version shows the new option in the Edit form. I started using it in my app without any issues. However, when I opened the editor the next day, I found a bunch of errors all related the the mentioned option. The problem is that the third option is either not showing up at all (meaning that only original two options are available) or it shows up as its numeric value, like this:example1.png


Refreshing the data source solves the problem! However, the issue reappears as soon as I restart the editor.

I had this issue a couple of months before, however, I managed to solve it by clearing Chrome cache and publishing the app. It didn't work this time and I was forced to restore an older version.


Has anyone faced this issue before?

Hi @Jevgenij ,


It is really a strange issue, and I can't reproduce it in my test, it seems to work well.

Maybe considering to create a new option set and replace it would be good way to solve your issue.


Best regards,


Hi @v-siky-msft ,

Thank you for your suggestion. That's exactly what I did yesterday and, of course, new option set field worked as expected.
Still, this is not the first time I have noticed this issue so I'm just wondering what may have caused it.
