Entity Catalog Refresh

Took me a while, but I was finally able to create a Virtual Connector to my Azure SQL Instance using the Virtual Connector Data Provider. Once created the Entity Catalog was created.

I have added new views and tables to my Azure SQL database, so my question is how do I refresh the Entity Catalog? Is there a refresh button (Not likely)? Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Based on everything I have been able to find, a Refresh is not necessary.  The Entity Catalog is kept up to date with a component created when the Entity Catalog is created.  That component is of Type "Add-In step".  The entry will look something like this:

Microsoft.Xrm.DataProvider.Connector.Plugins.ConnectorGenerateVEPlugin: Update of catalog entity: msdyn_ec_{name of catalog table}

The exact name may vary depending on what type of connector you are using, I am not sure. I am using the Virtual Connector Data Provider preview; your name may vary.

 

This component, along with the Entity Catalog can be found in the Default solution for the environment.

 

I hope this helps others.

 

Thank you.
