Set Lookup on embedded canvas app used ModelDrivenFormIntegration value

I have a canvas app integrated on a D365 CE form. The app is essentially a form and i would like to populate fields on the form with the context of the record it is embedded in. For example, embedded in an Account and i want to create a child record connected to the Account without having the user select it again.


Generally speaking i have had issues using the data from the FormIntegration context. Anyone have any advice/feedback? Thanks in advance!

Thanks, i missed on critical detail in that doc. Initially I was using the below:



Instead of:



Now, the field ext_fieldname is a lookup and i am trying to set that by default. I can pull the guid and drop it in a text field but passing that into the combobox i am using for the lookup doesnt work. It returns a "value must be a data entity" error. I have also tried just using the below to set the record by default without success:




Thanks again for your help
