Known issues and limitations

  1. There are occurrences when CDS triggers do not work in Production environment with Administrative Mode set to "on". If you experience this issue, a workaround would be to turn off the Admin Mode in the Power Platforms Admin Center.
  2. If the administration mode is enabled for used Environment (either a sandbox or production), the Power Automate flow with When a record is modified trigger will not fire when a record is modified. For more details on how to set administration mode, please refer to this page.
  3. When you use the "When a record is selected" trigger in a flow and have an If Condition step right after, you will receive an error if the attribute in the condition has a null value. The error message you will see is "'Invalid type. Expected String but got Null.". The suggested workaround is to insert a "Get Row" action between the "When the record is selected" and the If Condition step. By using the output of the "Get Row" action in your condition, you will be able to avoid this error.

Power Apps delegable functions and operations for Dataverse

These Power Apps operations, for a given data type, may be delegated to Dataverse for processing (rather than processing locally within Power Apps).

Item Number [1] Text [2] Choice DateTime [3] Guid
Filter Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Sort Yes Yes No Yes -
SortByColumns Yes Yes No Yes -
Lookup Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
=, <> Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
<, <=, >, >= Yes Yes No Yes -
And/Or/Not Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
StartsWith - Yes - - -
IsBlank Yes [4] Yes [4] No [4] Yes [4] Yes
Sum, Min, Max, Avg Yes [5] - - No -
  1. Numeric with arithmetic expressions (for example, Filter(table, field + 10 > 100) ) aren't delegable. Language and TimeZone aren't delegable.
  2. Doesn't support Trim[Ends] or Len. Does support other functions such as Left, Mid, Right, Upper, Lower, Replace, Substitute, etc.
  3. DateTime is generally delegatable except for DateTime functions Now() and Today().
  4. Supports comparisons. For example, Filter(TableName, MyCol = Blank()).
  5. The aggregate functions are limited to a collection of 50,000 rows. If needed, use the Filter function to select 50,000 rows from a larger set before using the aggregate function.

Note

Choices, Guids, and Aggregate functions for Dataverse are supported only with the new version of the connector. Depending on the version of Power Apps that you're using, enable this connector with either the Preview switch titled:

  • Relational data, choices, and other new features for Dataverse
    or this Experimental switch:
  • Use the Dataverse connector
    To find these switches, open the File menu, and then select App settings > Advanced settings.
