Cannot import data "Get Data" into an entity with a lookup field

I cannot import (Get Data) into any entity that has a lookup field.  The child entity is populated (from imported data).

 

This is the error:

I have a similar issue. I have an entity with a lookup field (many-to-one relationship) to the our User entity. Our User entity is populated from Active Directory.

My importing field values are 'text' fields containing the name of the user.

How can I have the import process use the importing user name, look up the name in the User entity, and set the field to the appropriate record in the User entity?

I suspect this may involve writing some M language code. If so, a reference to similar code would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Please guide!

What I have found is that you cannot import data into CDS that contains a custom lookup field from the PowerApps site.  You have to import it from the Dynamics 365 Administration Center.  From there, you are able to map the lookup fields to the appropriate entity (and field).  This is what is not done from the PowerApps site.  You can also import the data using PowerShell but it takes a bit more effort to write a script.

 

One problem I did find using the Dynamics 365 Administration Center import was that option set fields didn't work correctly.  I wasn't able to map them.

 

Ultimately, I just wrote a PowerShell script to hand all my imports.  Hope this helps!
