Regarding field missing when using CDS Connector on Activities

I'm trying to create an App that looks up Activities, simmply filtering on and showing them in a gallery. One of the fields I want to display is Regarding(regardingobjectid) but that doen't seem to be avaialble on using the CDS connector (as we are encouraged to use). If I use the Dynamics 365, the field is available. 

Is it just not avvailable using the CDS connector or I'm just missing it?

Re: Regarding field missing when using CDS Connector on Activities

Hi @Anonymous ,


Could you please share more details about your entity and your field?

What type of your field?Is it one number type in your entity?

Could you please share the screenshot of your entity's structure?

Could you please try with another environment to test it again?


Best Regards.

Re: Regarding field missing when using CDS Connector on Activities

I'm trying to create a Canvas app manage Dynamics 365 Activities. When I use the CDS connector to connect to the Activities entity, some fields are missing, specifically the Regarding field. Below are screenshots of a partial list of fields I can select when trying to configure the Browse Gallery. The first screeshot shows the list using the CDS connector and the second is using the Dynamics 365 connector. I get the Regarding and other fields using the Dynamics 365 but not with the CDS connector. 


I'm wondering if this is by design or I'm missing something?
