first() not working

When I create Power Automate flows for the List Rows Dataverse connector and I know I will only get 1 row returned I have always used a compose action then such as:


I seem to be now getting numerous errors when flows are edited or new such as expecting an array and received object.
I then tested returning multiple rows and it doesn't error it just remains empty.
I added a compose to prove there is a values returned which there is.
Any ideas?

Hi @antc2,


Just to double check. Are you looking for the name of the entity which is used in the regarding field, or the name of the record itself?


Have you tried either (Regarding object entity name):



or (Regarding object record name)



Happy to help out! 🙂
