canvas app: setting content type on creation of new items in SP list

I am attempting to add a new item of a particular content type to a list using a canvas powerapp. I have managed to pass the content type name as a parameter and I am setting the content type column. However, the form won't save - it gives me an error for invalid data source. When I removed the content type column I was able save successfully. 

 

Please advise.

Is this going to SharePoint? What is your data source? And if it is SharePoint what type of column is it that your having trouble with?

Hi,

 

Yes, its going to a SharePoint list. The column isa choice column; the app is now working after I passed the content type Id instead of the name! Thanks for much for your interest.
