Insert Maker as reference

I am in the middle of creating a flow that copies data from one dataverse to another and I am experiencing an issue, for which I FEEL like there should be an easy solution to, but I somehow can't wrap my head around.

 

My issue is that I need to copy a lot of data from one tabel (T1) into another (T2). The datacolumn in question which causes the problems are a Maker-column, which is a reference. This is from T1:

So I copied this for the Maker-column in T2.

But no matter what value I try to insert:

I either fails OR it simply leaves the column blank:

You need to write 

/admin_makers/

Then pick environment maker (value) from dynamic content , sorry for not explaining properly.

@TokeJacobsen

To save a lookup column you need to pass it as below:

/admin_makers/environmentmaker(value)

 

adminmakers should be the schemaname of your lookup table in plural

Hi again Mira,

 

I must admit, I didn't quite understand your solution, albeit I think this is exactly what I am looking for. 

 

Are you saying that my LookUp type should be AdminMaker and not Maker?

 

And how do you pass /admin_makers/environmentmaker(value)?

 

Thank you for your swift reply! 

 

@TokeJacobsen 

So I believe you are trying to set the lookup called Maker in T2 to Environment Maker from T1 , is my understanding correct?

That is completly correct

@TokeJacobsen 

So what I explained earlier is setting maker lookup on your flow.

So to set the lookup correctly it should be in the below format 

/admin_makers/Environment Maker (value) from dynamic content of the trigger output..or whatever you have been showing in your previous screenshot.

 

But is the environment maker lookup as well from Maker table?

Yes, this is what I'm showing in the first screenshot. Full image is like this:

This might make me look stupid, but I am not able to find anything resembling /admin_makers/Environment Maker (value) from the dynamic output

@TokeJacobsen

Okay, I believe it is working now. Thank you so much for you assistance, @Mira_Ghaly !

To clarify: the 

/admin_makers/ 
line, does a lookup in a table in the same environment? I have not found any good explaination anywhere regarding this?
