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
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.
