The specified record was not found upon opening app

I have several PowerApps using CDS entities . They have been working properly for almost 1 year now and suddenly starting last thursday, when the apps are opened, the error message right away fires "The specified record was not found" It's like the whole database is gone, but when you view data from entity, it's still there. the apps cannot access it. Please help, these are our VISITORS MANAGEMENT Applications (2 apps) and our Factory SAFETY Reporting APPS Smiley Sad I don't know how to help the users.

Re: The specified record was not found upon opening app

Hi  @JenVitug,


Please check the CDS connection, is it connecting properly? Please just try to update the connection to see if it will work.

Do all the apps that were created based on CDS entities have the same issue?

Could you try to create a new app that relies on CDS entity to see if you will still get the issue?

Besides, apps that are based on CDS entities could be opened without issue on my side.


Best regards,

Re: The specified record was not found upon opening app

@v-yamao-msft have done all your suggestions but still the apps are having the same error. I have already raised a ticket with Microsoft (1 week ago)  and to-date , it is still unresolved. 

[REG:118120519418181] PowerApps Pro Limited - All PowerApps using the CDS connection has stopped working , Error "Specified record was not found" at the homepage of each app Initial Response


PowerApps is now so unreliable, all our production apps using CDS have not been in use for almost 2 weeks now.
