CDS- Options entity drop down not showing in run (for other users)

Hi there,


I have created a  canvas app with a data entry form that has a drop down list generated from a CDS options field.  In preview mode it works perfectly. In run mode it works perfectly for me. The issue is,  I have shared the app with a number of other users, and when they run the app the drop down will not show any options for them and will not even show a blank drop down box.  Any ideas about what's going on? I have used the default data card and not unlocked it to make any changes.  I've attempted to recreate the form to see if that will make any difference, but no luck.


Super appreciate any help 🙂

Re: CDS- Options entity drop down not showing in run (for other users)

Hi @Cym ,


Do the users have permissions (Security Roles) to access the underlying entity in CDS?

Have you published your configuration changes in CDS?
