Unable to connect to my CDS entity. Error in selecting Item Identifier


I am trying to create a flow and get data from CDS entity. I see a field called Item Identifier. What should I put in there? I get strange error If I put any hardcoded value.  Starting point of my flow is  a manual Trigger.


SO in the item Identifier I am getting values like Address, city, timestamp, user, email, yes/no  etc. What is the meaning of these?


Please help

Hi @HitenGandhi,


Could you share more details on your scenario?

It seems that you are trying to get a record from CDS entity. What value have you specified for the Key value field?

This field requires a unique identifier of the record, please try to input a valid ID.

To get the exact ID of a record, please add an action Get list of records.

I have made the following test, please check it for a reference and try it on your side.



Best regards,

Thanks for the reply.


Actually when I am trying to follow the same steps as depicted by you, I am getting some issue. Do I need to add List record connector and then I have to ad get record for retrieving data from CDS? I mean is there any other way to scan all the record of the CDS entity and do data manipulation on each of them?
