Using Win and Lose Opportunity actions in Unbound Action of CDS Current Environment connector

Has anyone been able to successfully use WinOpportunity / LoseOpportunity actions from within Unbound Action in CDS Current Environment Connector?

 

It appears that you need to pass opportunityid@odata.bind there instead of opportunityclose _opportunityid_value which the actions offers you, because you end up with following error:

So what should be the correct way to call this action from within Flow?

Hi @hajekj

Sure, here it is:

 

hajekj_0-1596453742911.png

 

The Prilezitost value is: outputs('UpdateOpportunity')?['body/opportunityid'] (it is a valid GUID which exists in the target system). The action itself is defined as:

{
    "inputs": {
        "host": {
            "connectionName": "shared_commondataserviceforapps",
            "operationId": "PerformUnboundAction",
            "apiId": "/providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apis/shared_commondataserviceforapps"
        },
        "parameters": {
            "actionName": "WinOpportunity",
            "item/OpportunityClose/_opportunityid_value": "@outputs('UpdateOpportunity')?['body/opportunityid']",
            "item/Status": -1
        },
        "authentication": "@parameters('$authentication')"
    }

Hi @hajekj 

 

Try 

 

/opportunity(00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001)

I have tried it, but it expects Guid:

 

Flow save failed with code 'OpenApiOperationParameterValidationFailed' and message 'Input parameter 'item' validation failed in workflow operation 'Perform_an_unbound_action': The parameter with value '"/opportunity(4d900673-1eef-e911-a812-000d3ab366f6)"' in path 'item/OpportunityClose/_opportunityid_value' with type/format 'String' is not convertible to type/format 'String/uuid'.'.

 

I tried going around it by passing it from a variable but ended up with similar error:

 

The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation 'Perform_an_unbound_action' of type 'OpenApiConnection' is not valid. Error details: Input parameter 'item/OpportunityClose/_opportunityid_value' is required to be of type 'String/uuid'. The runtime value '"/opportunity(4d900673-1eef-e911-a812-000d3ab366f6)"' to be converted doesn't have the expected format 'String/uuid'.

 

Hi @hajekj 

 

I did tried and got the same error. Not sure what's causing this error. Worth raising a ticket with Power Automate Support.

 

Thanks

Have ticket #120072825000215 open, will post back with results.

is there any update on ticket #120072825000215?

Sorry, forgot to update this back, but the ticket is now closed with the following:

 

After reviewing and troubleshooting this issue critically, I escalated same to the backend team for more taction on the experience. We were informed by the team that the issues were a known issue and they are actively working on this feature to have it working as expected. When we get information on the release timeline, we will be sharing this with you.

The workaround I used for successfully closing out an opportunity was the following:

  • In Dynamics, create a process ACTION on opportunity entity. (Same process to create a traditional workflow in Dynamics, just select Action instead of workflow.) Within the action Use the "Change Status" step to set the status to Won or Lost. Activate action in your target environment
  • From Flow, select CDS - Perform a bound action. Entity = Opportunity / Action = Your newly created action from step 1. Input your opportunity id value from previous steps

Has there been any update on Microsoft fixing this issue? I am currently trying to use the unbound action - LoseOpportunity. I am still getting the error that you got.
