Cannot create record



Yesterday my app was working perfectly, today I'm getting this error 


invalid argument type. Expecting a OptionSetValue value, but of a different schema

This is my code



                CreatedAsset: Patch(
                        'Bar-code': grp_CreateNewAsset_dlg_tboxBarcode.Text,
                        'Asset Type': grp_CreateNewAsset_dlg_cbAssetTypes.Selected,
                        Product: grp_CreateNewAsset_dlg_cbProduct.Selected,
                        Warehouse: Resource.Warehouse,
                        Ownership: 'Asset Ownership'.Company,
                        'System Status': 'Asset System Status'.Installed

the error is being caused by the system status field, I don't know what the value should be other than this option set


this is my field
















any ideas for this issue, is the CDS 2.0 is ready for production or not yet

Re: Cannot create record

Hi @aboodhamwi ,

Do you mean that you can not update optionset successfully?

I've made a similar test but not met the problem like your description.

Here's my formula:

Patch(teachers,Defaults(teachers),{customstatus:test819.Draft})  //customstatus is the field name, test819 is the option set name

This works good.

Has your problem been solved?

If the problem still exists, please try to recreate the app and try again.

Re: Cannot create record

Hi @v-yutliu-msft,


What I'm saying is, there is no reason for this error to be thrown, i don't know why I'm getting it, before it was working, and suddenly it have this error, as your knowledge is the CDS 2.0 is stable or not yet


Re: Cannot create record

I think you can get the Option Set value patched by using the Value of the option that you're attempting to update.


I found this post that said to use the numeric value of the item you're trying to set.


I don't know if you are trying to patch a value that you're allowing the user to set, but I found to get the correct item input for that scenario to append "Value" to the function:


"XXXX_communicationtype: CommunicationType.Selected.Value"
