Flow to custom SharePoint list via Common Data Service


Maybe someone can help?


I have a custom powerapp that adds an entry into a custom entity in the Common Data Service (CDS). I also have a flow that insert this new entry into my custom SharePoint (SP) list. Everything works as expected, however, I am struggling to find a way to create a flow that updates the sharepoint item when the corresponding entry is updated in the CDS. There seems no way to reference the item in question (in SP) from the CDS entity.


Problem is when a new list item is created in SP, the item gets an internal (count?) ID (1,2,3 etc),  The CDS entity has also an ID, which seems incompatible to SP.

Re: Flow to custom SharePoint list via Common Data Service

Hi Priannet,


Thanks for feedback.


I test this issue on my side by creating two flows, Flow1 is used to create an item in SharePoint list when a record is created in CDS entity, Flow2 is used to update an item in SharePoint list when a record in CDS entity is modified.

But Flow2 doesn't work as expected, the item in SharePoint list cannot be updated.


I am going to confirm this issue from my side and back to you once I got any updates.


Best regards,
Mabel Mao
