Patch a CDS option set from canva app

Hi

 

I'm trying to patch a CDS option set from my Canvas app using a button. 

 

The CDS entity is called 'alerts' the field is called 'Level" and the option set is called 'qrs_alertstate'. Alertstate has a few values; Critical, Warning and OK. 

 

for the life of me I can't get this to update. Here is my code: 

 

Patch([@Alerts], ThisItem, {Level : 'Level'.Okay})

 

can anyone help? 

 

thanks in advance

Hi @Dr_David_Banner ,

 

Yes, that is the problem.

 

The Option Set Name is Alert State, the code should be:

Patch([@Alerts], ThisItem, {Level : [@'Alert State'].'Okay'})

Hope this helps.

Try:

Patch([@Alerts], ThisItem, {Level : LookUp(Level, qrs_alertstate="Okay")})

I think the problem, for whatever reason is it can't find qrs_alertstate ?

Hi @Dr_David_Banner ,

 

Could you please try this? The option set also need to marked by a disambiguation operator

Patch([@Alerts], ThisItem, {Level : [@'Level'].Okay})

Hope this helps.

Hi @Dr_David_Banner ,

 

OK, What is the Option Set Name (Not the Option Set Field Name)?

Could you please share the Option Set Field property shown as below?
