not able to find missing required field in canvas app form submit

I have created a canvas app in power apps, where on submit data is submitted in Sharepointlist.

The form is big and SP List contains more tha 50 columns. There are many customized validations in the form.

 

Issue is on submitting the form , I am getting error "An entry is required or has an invalid value. Please correct and try again",

I check all the validations, also removed required from SP List, still getting the error.

 

Is there any way to find out which field is creating this error?

Hi @PowerAddict  @v-bofeng-msft ,
Thanks for your response.


My issue is resolved , I found which was the required field. But the issue was that, it is a very big form and required is set by custom validation following certain condition check. So I was not able to find where I set that field required in the code because that field was set to invisible because of some condition.

 

If there is any way to get a report kind of thing to see all required validation set (either OOB or customized validation) in such big form then it would be helpful to resolve such issues.

     OR

 

if any way Error can return name of the field or any other information related to field that is throwing error, then it can be tracked easily in case of big forms with a lot of fields in the form

Hi @prteotia

 

Did you try removing the SharePoint list as a data source from the app and then add it again? Let me know if that helps.

Hi @prteotia :

Please check the datacards' Required proeprty.If they are ‘true’, then changing them to false will no longer cause an error.

In addition,you could replace  

SubmitForm(FormName)

with

Patch(YourSPList,Defaults(YourSPList),FormName.Updates)

this can also avoid errors (provided that you have indeed set all fields in the SP list as non-required fields)

Best Regards,

Hi @prteotia :

If it is the default form, the field in question will be prompted and marked in red. If you have done a lot of customization on the form, then I am afraid there is no convenient solution.

I am having exactly the same issue in a form with many fields, some hidden conditionally. It is a total nightmare to identify the field that is causing the problem.

 

I have previously programmed using many different rapid development systems similar to Power Apps (e.g. BaaN ERP, J.D. Edwards, etc.) and they all provide a way to see and analyse the script that sits behind the graphical front-end. I wish Microsoft would do the same to Power Apps.

 

Microsoft also need to provide actionable error messages. I have had several problems in recent months that are all made worse by a Microsoft error message that contains no useable information!

Patch(YourSPList,Defaults(YourSPList),FormName.Updates)

 

worked!  Thank You!
