Missing trigger for Common Data Service connector

The Dynamics 365 connector has 'When a record is created or updated' as a trigger.

The Common Data Service connector has 'When a record is created' and 'When a record is updated' as separate triggers. 

 

This means I would need to create two identical flows with separate triggers if using the CDS connector. It is suggested to use CDS rather than Dynamics 365 as the connector, so a trigger should be added for 'When a record is created or updated'

Re: Missing trigger for Common Data Service connector

Hi @peteaxtell 

If you create a Flow from within a Solution you should get access to another CDS connector for the "Current Environment" only. This connector has a single trigger that is fired on Create, Update, or Delete of a record in the CDS.

Is this trigger available in Europe? I can't select it.

Re: Missing trigger for Common Data Service connector

Hi @Lani 

This trigger is only available in the "Common Data Service (Current Environment)" connector which can only be selected when creating your Flow within a CDS solution. If you create the Flow from the "my flows" area then you will not see it.

I've also found that you may need to search for it in the connectors by typing "Common" in the search box as it doesn't show up sometimes.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for your help! When I first searched it didn't come up. My problem was I clicked on the common data serverice icon and then only a short list comes up. When I typed common data service in the search field, I got a bigger list and  the "When a record is created, updated or deleted" it came up. Smiley Happy
