When would onSave form event occur in model-driven apps?

We can use three different functions to save a form: formContext.data.entity.save formContext.data.save formContext.data.refresh(true…)   Off the top of your head, do you know which one will result in the “onSave” form event and when? Those details might not be quite obvious when looking at the documentation for each of the functions separately, but there is… Read More »

We can now do column comparison with Fetch/Web API!

Wow, we’ve been asking about it for a (long) while: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-column-comparison-through-fetchxml-sdk-and-odata/ Do you want to do column comparison with Fetch? You can do it now – it’s only supported for a few conditions so far: Equal NotEqual GreaterThan GreaterEqual LessThan LessEqual   And it’s not, yet, supported in the UI query building tools (Advanced Find).… Read More »

That’s a little unusual feeling, but, well, the truth has to… Read More »

CDS: How to receive notifications when a user gets added to/removed from the AD group team

AD group teams are not managed exactly the same way “native” teams are managed in CDS, and one difference seems to be that associate/disassociate events will not be triggered for such teams. However, this does not mean there is no way to respond to a change in the group membership, it just has to be… Read More »

Can we call a PowerAutomate Flow synchronously on create/update of a record?

It seems like a no-brainer question with a simple “no” answer; however, there was something that came up on Linkedin while discussing my other post about using CDS pre/post images with the Flow: https://www.itaintboring.com/dynamics-crm/cds-post-images-and-cds-pre-images-in-powerautomate-flows/ What if, instead of using the service bus, we tried using “web hook” option in the Plugin Registration Tool? It does… Read More »
