Calling Actions from Copilot Studio

Copilot is validating arguments to my action, but I don't want that

Posted on by 4

I have the type as StringPrebuiltEntity. The field display name is "last name". Prompted "What is your last name?", if I type "Flintstone I get "I’m sorry, but I couldn’t find any information about the last name property. What is your last name?"

 

I don't want any validation, just take whatever is typed. How do I get that?

 

Edit: is a power apps flow with a Skills trigger mapped as an action. Action definition:

kind: TaskDialog
modelDisplayName: Saves a question or complaint for review.
modelDescription: Saves a question or complaint for review.
inputs:
  - kind: AutomaticTaskInput
    propertyName: text
    name: issue
    description: A description of the customer's question or complaint. Require this but accept any text.
    entity: StringPrebuiltEntity

    You would have to say more about how your copilot is designed. Are you using a question node? Plugin action?
