Common Data Model Object Update

Another question:


Is there a way to update objects that would be more "sql" like - updating only the fields that I actually want to change? Currently I have to rewrite the whole object (or I get error messages saying thar required values are not filled in - they do not change...).

For updating objects any empty field should be simply left in the current state...

the first tab (not fully visible) is Get entity data.


The idea is to use a filter, so that resulting array will have either 1 element (if the filter matches) or 0 elements (if there is no element in the database) and then use a condition to direct execution in the right direction.
