Rule: Create/Update Entity Record



To better understand how the Create/Update Entity Record rule works, check out the Using Apps with Data Service pages in the How To section.

The Create/Update Entity Record can be configured in the case of any control. To configure this rule you must use expressions. For more information on how to use expressions, see About Expressions.
This rule can accept the following inputs:

  • A reference to the entity itself
  • A specific entity to update

Which entity record should be created/updated?

Add the entity that you want to create or update.
Once you add the entity you want to work with, the fields corresponding to the columns from the data table are listed below. You can set values for each field individually.
To update an entity record, a Lookup must be used in order to find the record and update it.


When created/updated

The When created/updated property provides the ability to define rules to be executed whenever the process completes.
A best practice is to display a success message after the entity is created or updated using the Show Message and selecting Success from the Type drop-down list.

On Error

If the process encounters an error, an error message is displayed by default.
You can configure this field if you want to display an error message in another user interface (UI) component.
