How to get the unique row number of a Business Central record that is synced to a Dataverse Record?

Hi all,


I have a dataverse table "Accounts" that is synced and coupled to a Business Central table "Customers". I've made a flow that is triggered if a value of a row in Account changes.  This flow then creates a record in a different table (Jobs) in Business Central for the selected Account/Customer. To create this new record, I need to get the Business Central record of the account.

I can't select the record in Business Central with my flow, because I don't know the row ID of the record in the Business Central table. I tried using the unique value of the Account row in dataverse, but this is not the same as the row ID of the record in the Business Central Customers table.

Using Postman I've requested all entries in my Business Central Table, and I found that the ID of the row I needed was indeed different than the value of that row in Dataverse. When I hardcoded this ID, I could access the record with my PO flow. I know these records are synced on their GUID, but apparently this is not the same as both Row ID's.

How can I select the right record in my Business Central table with the information I have in my Dataverse table?


Thanks in advance!
