Model based app - Mapping from SharePoint
column A is type: Person or Group
column b is type: Choice
CDS Entity Editor
In the new CDS Entity Editor there is no field type option for Person Name so I chose to use a Text field type thinking the name value would be returned and not the ID.
Power Query Editor - Mapping
column B, Choice type is not surfaced
Column A - Only the ID is surfaced, which is an int. The ID value fails to map to the CDS Text field.
SharePoint Choice fields should map to CDS Option Set
SharePoint Person or Group fields should either map to CDS Text field or a CDS Person Name field which is not available in this version. Person Name is available in Canvas Based Apps ?
SharePoint People field is record based, which is known as lookup type.
And the lookup type defined under Common Data Service and the SharePoint list is different.
This should be considered as a current limitation when it comes to Entity mapping.
Please consider submit it as an idea (or user voice), to suggest the Model based App to fully support the SharePoint field mapping.
