App broken this AM - OwnerId column no longer loading into CDS for Apps Entities



I have been developing an app over the past few weeks that seems to be continuously hampered by random issues from server-side changes.


Today, I'm attempting to load an app that was working as of last Thursday, but is now broken because a column I use to filter items with (OwnerId), no longer loads into my PowerApp entities! (Common Data Service for Apps Instance Version:


I am using the OwnerId column instead of the 'Created By' or 'Modified By' column to filter items that belong to a specific user (so that changes to an entity by another party don't make it invisible to the owner).

Is there any reason why this was removed? Is there something I can do to get it back?

ownerId is a special lookup control in Dynamics 365 CE and is similar to Customer Control, the owner can be a user (Systemuser) or a Team record, the issue most of the time you need to validate that the ownerid is a user or a team and then update the records for import, making sure you have the user or the Team in your target organization.


This is a common issue when using complex controls, like owner and customers


hope this help you. 




Hey @AbeSaldana,


My issue is not that I don't understand the column, it's that it is no longer showing up as a selectable column on Entities.  It looks like something was changed on the experimental connector that removed it.

Any update on this?

Hey @MichelGueli,


From my tests this issue appears to be occuring only for the CDS Experimental Connector feature.
And no, I have not received a response from Microsoft on this at all.
