Creating new entities programmatically? (Flow, API, PowerShell, etc...)

Does any know of a way to create entities programmatically?  I've look at Flow CDS actions, and it only provides the action to "list entities" not to create them.  

 

Since I don't still down know if CDS can store a few million records, my strategy is to split the data into multiple entities each time a new project starts.

 

Thanks in advance for the tip...

@VFXPro1 - you can create entities using the API documented here (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt593051.aspx) but there should be no reason you can't store this data in a single entity. I understand from the other thread you're having problems importing - but I don't believe that's related to a technical limitation.

 

My advise would be to avoid splitting entities programatically to avoid ongoing maintainence and potential reporting/analaytics challenges down the road by being spread across multiple entities.

Thanks,
Clay.
