I have been developing an app over the past few weeks that seems to be continuously hampered by random issues from server-side changes.
Today, I'm attempting to load an app that was working as of last Thursday, but is now broken because a column I use to filter items with (OwnerId), no longer loads into my PowerApp entities! (Common Data Service for Apps Instance Version: 18.104.22.1687)
I am using the OwnerId column instead of the 'Created By' or 'Modified By' column to filter items that belong to a specific user (so that changes to an entity by another party don't make it invisible to the owner).
Is there any reason why this was removed? Is there something I can do to get it back?
ownerId is a special lookup control in Dynamics 365 CE and is similar to Customer Control, the owner can be a user (Systemuser) or a Team record, the issue most of the time you need to validate that the ownerid is a user or a team and then update the records for import, making sure you have the user or the Team in your target organization.
This is a common issue when using complex controls, like owner and customers
hope this help you.
My issue is not that I don't understand the column, it's that it is no longer showing up as a selectable column on Entities. It looks like something was changed on the experimental connector that removed it.
From my tests this issue appears to be occuring only for the CDS Experimental Connector feature.
And no, I have not received a response from Microsoft on this at all.
