PowerApp using CDS - getting json parsing error in Monitor

Has anyone seen this error before?

I have a CDS entity with thousands of rows in it, and when watching the app in Monitor I see thousands of these messages for this entity. 
Json Parsing error expected 'object' but got 'string'. Comes up on the owninguser, modifiedby and createdby columns.

This is a common error and can only be fixed when Microsoft themselves get round to fixing it.

If this post has answered your question please consider it for "Accept as Solution" or if it has been helpful give it a "Thumbs Up".

Hello Solution Sage; What is the underlying problem to be fixed and what impact does the error have on an app ?

Hi @barlowse, Where exactly are you seeing this error?, model-driven app, canvas app, etc? A screenshot of the page would be great... Thanks 

In monitor running a canvas app. The screenshot is in my original post. The app doesn't show any errors - they just show up in the monitor.


Gotchya. Would suggest to raise this issue in a Microsoft Support Ticket at

They will be able to tell you more about it and hopefully provide an ETA. Cheers
