How to mark a dynamics 365 task as completed

Hi Community,


Like everyone else, I was 'copy & paste' all the workflows in D365 to Power Automate, however, here is a really simple question that I cannot figure out.


In my D365 workflow, I can create a Task record, and change record status to 'Completed' (see the screenshot below)

However, in the power automate, I don't really know how to do that,  I tried to 'Update the record' -> change the status to completed, then I received this error message:

The flow in the power automate is really simple: Create a record (CDS) -> Update a record (CDS), i deleted the 'update record' stage as it doesn't work.

Also, just another question, when do we use create a CDS record, and when do we use create a d365 record? 


Many many thanks in advance,

Hi @domdom 


Here is an example of create a task record and update the status. If this does not help you much share a screen capture of your flow so i can help you better.

Thanks for your reply, this is exactly what i did and it just doesn't work 😞


The error message is: 5 is not a valid status code for state code TaskState. 5 is the value of 'completed' in our CRM



Don't know if you have found the solution for this. And I have just came across the same error with both CDS and the current environment connector. In case if anyone else gets this error, here is what worked for me


Update the field "Activity Status" instead of the "Status Reason"
