common data model system fields are populated with random data

I am trying to build a sample application using the Contact entity of the Common Data Model.  I have followed the guide to connecting and generating the application, but, when the app runs and I add a record the CreatedByUser read only field generates a 20 something digiit number instead of the current user.  The sample data provided is populated with Admin for this field.  How do I make the new record use the logged in user name.

Hi roknron,

 

I have tried to use the default app created by PowerApps using the Contact entity connection. And I cannot add any need contacts in that generated app. Any new ones I added will disappear after saving and waiting for a while. I will never show up in the display form in the app. 

 

Finally I can add a blank record and I reproduced your issue. See the Created By User column here:

I will try to report this issue to the product team.

I'll also observed that the ContactID for the new record does not follow the naming convention of the example data..  The app creation process should also be able to detect read only fields and populate the forms of the app with represented text instead of text boxes used for data entry.
