Filtering a CDS by Status in ClearCollect

This feels like something that should be straightforward, but I'm struggling with it. I'm using ClearCollect to create a Collection from a CDS entity. However, I just want the active records as I've no need to be storing the inactive ones. 

 

Filter(Sites,Text(statecode)="Active") works but gives me the delegation warning. I can't help feeling that must be a neater way to just query the 0 or 1 value of the status rather than getting the text value of the statecode. If there's a better way, then this might help me avoid the delegation warning too.

 

Just for context, here is the full command - 

ClearCollect(SitesLocal,AddColumns(Filter(Sites,Text(statecode)="Active"),"Site Name","str_name","Site Status",Status,"Site Manager Email",'Site Manager'.emailaddress1,"Contracts Manager Email",'Contracts Manager'.emailaddress1));

 

Is there a cleaner way to filter out the inactive records?

Re: Filtering a CDS by Status in ClearCollect

Hi @John_P ,

The reason why you get delegation warning is that the Text function is non-delegable function in CDS.

I've made a similar test.

Try this formula:

Filter(table,Status='Status (table)'.Active)

Here's a doc about delegable funtion in CDS for your reference:

Re: Filtering a CDS by Status in ClearCollect

Hi @John_P 

I don't think that you can avoid the delegation warning because Status (or statecode) is a compound field.  Intellesense did not expose any properties of the Status field like ".Value". However, in Model Driven Apps, it is easy to filter Active from InActive records using metadata alone.  That being said, 

I was playing around with it and I found that if you add a column to your collection

ClearCollect(colplans,AddColumns(Plans,"stat",Status))

and then set the Items property of a DataTable or Gallery to 

Filter(colplans,"Active" in stat)

There was no delegation warning.
