"Missing Columns" Error because optional Parameters are missing from Custom Connector call

Hello,

 

I'm trying to have a Custom Connector Action with a single body parameter ("type: object", so a Json Object or Record). This Parameter should be able to only contain a selection of its parameters. For example:

 

{
  "issue": {
    "project_id": 123,
    "description": "New Description",
    "is_private": false
  }
}

 

 or

 

{
  "issue": {
    "project_id": 1500
    "dummy": "true"
  }
}

 

or

 

{
  "issue": { }
}

 

But instead I get the follwing error for IssueUpdate({issue: {project_id: 12}}) :

Missing column. Your formula is missing a column 'issue.description' with a type of 'String'.

 

Even though all of issue property's are optional (no "required: [...]" in the OpenAPI file and in the Custom Connector Editor "is required" is false).

 

In the Test Tab of the editor, everything works as expected, but not in the Power App Formula. After trying alternatives I found that this does works with "first level" parameters, so if I want to have optional parameters on the "issue" scope (for example "issue2": {...}"), but not inside the "issue" record itself.
