Attributemetadata in Dataset parameter or pCF context

I need to display a logic based on optionset metadata(options available) in my new GRID control developed using PCF . Is there any way to get the metadata(like from context.parameters.dataset.columns or any other) without requerying using Utility.getentitymetadata(). I need to perform some logic on these options based on other parameters and do not want to make round trips to the server(for performance) if available with context.

Hi @Goutham , 

Unfortunately you need to make requests for the metadata regarding a dataset PCF. I've reported an Idea for this, maybe you would like to vote it too:

Dataset PCF : metadata for columns or property-set... - Power Platform Community (

Kind regards,
