Who created Custom Entity

I am from Power Platforms team (Power Apps and Power Automate). I am very new to Dynamics CRM/Dynamics 365 or CDS database. Our Power Apps default environment is CDS enabled. As per the security roles defined in our environment, Only System Admins have privileges to create Custom Entities. But there are around 30 to 40 custom entities created. We are looking for the details on who created those entities, how would they be able to create an entity. We are unable to get these details using the default fields or advanced find.

Can someone please share the details how we can get the details and different ways the users are able to create entities

 

Thanks

Lakshman

Re: Who created Custom Entity

Hello LakshmanChand,

Currently there's no attribute which will tell you the user who created the entity. We could use Entity Definitions to get custom entity definitions like "CreatedOn" date. 

OData query :

I would recommend customer to raise one ticket to ask support to search from backend if your require this information. Thanks.

Best Regards,
Johnny
