Slow CDS Entity Creation

Hi All! 

 

I have setup some Entities in PowerApps CDS that get their data from Excel Tables. 

 

I have one with nearly 2000 rows that imported in roughly 30 mins. 

 

I have only table with 2 rows and 15ish columns. I have left it nearly 2 hours and it is still stuck on the 'Waiting for load in CDS to complete' screen. New browsers and cached cleared to no avail

 

My environment is in EU West. Attached is a screenshot.

Hi @AndyH_JSY,

An error probably occurred. Here are a few things to try to investigate:

  1. Does that entity trigger any plugins? You can see errors in the plugin trace logs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/common-data-service/logging-tracing)
  2. Do some records get created? If so, does it always fail at the same one? You can check via Advanced Find or the sitemap (left menu) if you added the entity there.
  3. Are you running the Dataflow as system admin? Meaning you have the "system administrator" security role assigned. Might be a privilege issue.
  4. Cancel Dataflow job and restart

Hope this helps!

Hi @EricRegnier!

 

Thanks for your feedback!

 

I had a look at the Dataflows and it appears they were creating a large number of duplicates. 

 

If I create an entity and add the fields, then import the data via the 'New Dataflow', then it is successful! I will avoid the Get Data button now!

 

Thanks for your help!
