Entity Missing while setting Duplicate Detection rule for CDS Entity

Hi Experts,

 

I am trying to set the duplication detection rule but I am not able to see the specific entity on which I want to set the rule.

Could you please help me in understanding a possible cause of not able to see the entity.

 

Thanks,

Amit

Hi @Anonymous,

Here are the actual steps to enable Duplicate Detection on an entity:

  1. In make.powerapps.com, navigate to Data, Entities and select the entity you wish to enable Duplicate Detection
  2. Click on "Settings" on the top menu
  3. Expand "More settings", expand "Create and update settings"
  4. Check Duplicate detection and make sure you save and publish. You should then see that entity in the duplicate detection rules

Also note, you can't deploy Duplicate Detection rules with CDS solutions. You'll have to recreate them in the target environment(s) or you can use this tool from the XrmToolBox: https://www.xrmtoolbox.com/plugins/Vitalogy.XTB.DuplicateRulesMover/

Hope this helps!

you must first go to the entity configuration and enable the entity for duplicate detection and then you can publish your duplicate detection rules
