🔗🔑 Model-driven app - Alternate Key addressable record URL

Alternate Keys in Common Data Service allow to define unique keys for records (for example an account number), as an alternative way to uniquely identify records, additionally to the system native GUIDs.

However, in order to build the URL to a record, only the record GUID can be used. That can be a challenge for external systems that generally don't have that technical information available.

 

It would be ideal if Alternate Keys could also be leveraged to build the URL to a record.

Example:

https://***.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?appid=cecfd9a7-4659-e911-a968-000d3ab45014&pagetype=entityrecord&etn=account&accountnumber=ABC123

Instead of: 

https://***.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?appid=cecfd9a7-4659-e911-a968-000d3ab45014&pagetype=entityrecord&etn=account&id=5dc35205-3b9e-e911-a96d-000d3ab45014
