Patching a LookUp field: The right side of the Equal operator must be a constant value

As the title says I am patching a LookUp field in CDS. I have not had a problem with this before.

 

1) I am creating an offline collection which collects some details for a new record plus the GUID of a related entity and the GUID for another related entity.

 

2) The first LookUp to be patched works. I create a GUID on the device for the related entity. Upload the related record first with the GUID then do a patch for the next entity and relate it with the GUID:

 

Shift: LookUp(Choices('Shift Activities'.Shifts), UID=new_shiftGUID)

 

3) Then the other related entity already has a record in the system so I get the system generated GUID

 

4) Within the same patch I try to update the LookUp field for this second related entity:

 

Campaign: LookUp(Choices('Shift Activities'.Campaigns), Campaign=new_campaignid)

 

5) While the record is patched, it does not complete the Campaign LookUp field. Instead, using monitor I get the following error:

 

"message": "The right side of the \"Equal\" operator must be a constant value."
 
6) If I put the field value in a text box with this formula:
First(colOfflineShiftCollection).new_campaignid
 
7) Then do another text box to Look Up the campaign based on the string:
LookUp(Campaigns, Campaign=GUID(Label26.Text)).Name

 

😎 It works and I can reference the Campaign

 

9) Similarly, if I patch the LookUp field using the value from the text box the Patch works fully!

 

10) What is going on? Why can't I patch this LookUp field?

Sorry I'm not sure what you mean by your reply. If you are suggesting that the second URL is the correct one then yes I agree, this is my point. PowerApps is not constructing the URL in this way, it is constructing the first one. I don't know why it is doing this and I can't see a way around it and so I am getting the problem I initially posted about.

Is this still an open issue? Im running into same issue, and can't find solution anywhere.
