Referencing Data Service Entity in Custom List


Is it possible to use a Data Service entity as data source for a custom list? I’ve tried, but I get no data. When I use the exact same source for a table, I can see the data.

I would like to have a list from data service with a checkbox next to each item. Can this be done? Preferably without having to load a process that populates a data table.




I encountered the same problem. Did you manage to find the solution?
