    The reply from Anthony did answer my question. Not sure why I can't verify the answer on this forum. When I click "Does this answer your question?" checkbox, it just keep circulating and never verified the answer. I tried different browser, the same issue.

    FYI you may find useful for testing - I've added the refresh data entity call to the D365 Finance APIs Postman workspace, links and how to use it are all in here: https://anthonyblake.github.io/d365/finance/integrations/2024/06/23/d365-integration-postman-updates.html

    I haven't done this myself, but in theory it's very possible.
     
    There is an OData action to refresh data entities, there is an article about how to set up and use OData actions in Power Automate here:
     
     
    The action you need to trigger the entity refresh is:
     
    data/DataManagementDefinitionGroups/Microsoft.Dynamics.DataEntities.InitializeDataManagement
     
    A demo of the action can be found in the d365fo.integrations powershell module on github, take a look at it here:
