Introduction:

This blog explains how to set Customer Type field in D365 Javascript Web API.

Problem Statement:

We get error while setting value of Account lookup on Contact in D365 Javascript Web API as below:
“An undeclared property ‘customerid’ which only has property annotations in the payload but no property value was found in the payload. In OData, only declared navigation properties and declared named streams can be represented as properties without values.”

Solution:

We can achieve this functionality by adding suffix entity name to the schema name of the field.

Steps of Implementation:

Below code demonstrates how to set Account on Contact.

entity["[email protected]"] = "/accounts(" + Account_GUID + ")";

Below code demonstrates how to set Contact on Contact.

entity["[email protected]"] = "/contacts(" + Contact_GUID + ")";

Note: This issue arises when lookup attribute of the entity can accept multiple types of entity references below are common examples
1. Customer on Incident
2. Customer on Contact
3. Customer type field on Custom Entity.

Conclusion:

We can resolve issue for setting Customer type field in Javascript D365 Web API by adding suffix entity name to the schema name of the field.
