💡 Tip: Get Formatted Values to your Web API response from Dataverse.

We all know the drill – SDK and Power Automate users, you get the luxury of having formatted values by default. 👑

I’m a regular user of the ‘OPEN RECORD IN WEB API’ action in ‘Level up for Dynamics 365/Power Apps’ extension 🚀. The downside? It doesn’t showcase Formatted values, or any annotations for that matter.

What’s needed is a tweak to your request. Simply add the following header:

Prefer: odata.include-annotations=”*”

Now for the real question – how can one do that in the browser? 🤔

Sure, you could tinker around with the developer tools built into your browser, but why settle for the hard way when there’s an easier solution?

Say hello to the ‘Modify Header Value’ extension! With this gem, you can effortlessly specify a custom header addition for every domain. 💎
