Alternate key datatype in dataverse dataflow

Hello everyone,

I am creating upsert(update and create new row) dataflow in dataverse. sharepoint is my data source and importing it to dataverse existing table. So I created a key in dataverse table. 

Based on below link alternate key can have date column type. While creating key in dataverse table, no error occured, but while trying to map i have an error stating that only text and number column types are allowed.

Please guide me how to activate to use this data type column. why is it showing me like this?

Hi @Krishna09 ,

I suggest you temporarily change the data type of the column to text and try again, to check if it's the problem of date type.
