Relationship Behavior Types in Dataverse

| Ijlal Monawwar

In Microsoft Dataverse (the data platform underlying Dynamics 365 and Power Platform), relationships between entities are defined using behavior types. There are several different behavior types available, each of which determines how the related records will behave when certain actions are taken:

Referential: This behavior type establishes a one-to-many relationship between two entities. When a record in the primary entity is deleted, the related records in the secondary entity are not affected.

Parental: This behavior type establishes a one-to-many relationship between two entities, with the primary entity being the parent and the secondary entity being the child. If parent is deleted, assigned or shared then child records are also affected.

You can choose the appropriate behavior type based on the needs of your application and the relationships between your entities.
