Unable to Connect

Morning all,

 

I've creating a Power BI report that connects to the Common Data Service (CDS). When querying the CDS using this URL, "https://<tenant removed>.crm4.dynamics.com" I get the following error:

 

"The feed's metadata document appears to be invalid. Error: The type Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.contact has conflicting definitions for the property <property removed>"

I've gone into the CDS and located the fields "Manager" (both with the same display name). I have since renamed one to "ManagerName" and the other remains as "Manager".

 

Any idea why this issue would still be occuring, is there something else I need to do?

 

Thanks,

J

You may still have issues with fields called Manager and ManagerName, as CDS generates virtual fields by adding 'Name' as a suffix for lookups and option sets. Try renaming 'ManagerName' to something else to see if that's the issue

Hi @v-siky-msft,

 

We're trying to connec to the Common Data Service using Power BI. However I think the issue sits within the CDS, reason being, we recently upgrades from Dynamics 365 v8.2 to v9.1. I reckon, doing so caused changes to the CDS.

 

I'm hoping that I come across others with the same error who ideally found a workaround.

 

Thanks,

J

Hi @DavidJennaway,

 

We have a relationship and field both named <placeholder>_manager.

 

Is that likely to cause the issue?

 

Thanks,

Just wondering if you were able to resolve this issue you reported and if so, how did you go about it?

 

Cheers and thanks

Hi @SERGIOD ,

 

We recently went through a clean-up and now no longer experience this issue.

 

It could have been the issued stated above however I have no way of testing this.

 

Apologies
