Does addLinkedEntity have an outer join type?

Pretty much as the title suggests I'd like to add related entities/columns on occasion for a dataset control but I'd like this to be an outer join. Is this possible?

Hi @skoofy5 , 

Have you tried an expression with linkType "outer"? 

var expression = {
name: ...,
from: ...,
to: ...,
linkType:"outer"
};

 The "linkType" is documented, but the possible values not yet: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/reference/ilinkentityexpose...

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind regards,

Diana

I tried this a while ago, but acted like an inner join at the time. So there's missing documentation here again? I've submitted a comment on that page. Could someone from MS give me some insight on this?
