Add the ability to CDS Views - to filter by a parameter

Being able to use Views defined on the CDS entities is great for Power Apps, however, you still have to fetch all your rows and use filtering within the app to limit the data presented to the user. I would like to be able to pass a parameter to the CDS view in order to limit the rows fetched from the server.

You can customize your view to filter down to specific records. The filter is found in the bottom right of the view creator.

Yes - the filtering is available - but it is a static filter - I am looking for a dynamic filter - where I can pass a variable from a Pwer App to the View.

Somebody, I need to same. I need to have the possibility to add a variable name. So that I can pass a value from the powerapps selection to the view. Thanks

This feature would be extremely helpful

Hi @barlowse,

It is not possible out-of-the-box to have a dynamics filter in the entity list page (clicking the entity from the sitemap). For what exact scenario are you trying to have a dynamics filter? There are probably a few workarounds, for instance:

  • If you want to dynamics filter a view for a lookup field that it's possible with the addCustomFilter function


formContext.getControl(arg).addCustomFilter(filter, entityLogicaName)


  • For a subgrid on a form, then you can dynamics filter based on the related record
  • Or you can filter a subgrid on a form with SetParameter but it is an unsupported customization
  • You can have some pre-build views and toggle them as need be

Hope this helps
