Just wanted to share a tip in regards to the primary field of “Name” when we create a custom entity in Dynamics.
When an entity is created in Dynamics, by default a primary attribute of “prefix_name” is added to it. However in some cases we may not like the primary attribute to have the schema name “prefix_name”. For example in some cases , we may just like to have it as “id” or “external_identifier” to indicate a match with the legacy source of the data.
In such cases, when we are creating the entity, we can go to the tab “Primary Field” wherein we can modify the name of the primary field by altering its name. In the below screenshot, we are changing the Name field, by removing the word “name” from it and adding as per our preference.
