I'am on Drupal7 and wanto to reference this custom entity

function myentity_entity_info() {
  $info['myentity_basic'] = array(
    'label' => t('Ind (myentity)'),
    'controller class' => 'EntityAPIController',
    'views controller class' => 'EntityDefaultViewsController',
    'base table' => 'myentity_basic',
    'uri callback' => 'myentity_basic_uri',
    'fieldable' => TRUE,
    'entity keys' => array(
      'id' => 'basic_id' ,
      'bundle' => 'bundle_type',
    'bundle keys' => array(
      'bundle' => 'bundle_type',
    'static cache' => TRUE,
    'bundles' => array(
      'ind_bundle' => array(
        'label' => 'Ind bundle (myentity)',
        'admin' => array(
          'path' => 'admin/structure/myentity_basic/manage',
          'access arguments' => array('administer myentity_basic entities'),

  return $info;

I am using an autocomplete field with data coming from an entityreference view and everything works as expected when saving the referencing entity but when I come to edit it again then the entity reference field in the form is not displaying fields (eg. name) from the myentity but just the basic_id between parenthesis.


Problem is when I hit save, the reference to myentity gets lost.

What I am missing?

PS I have another reference field to user entity and it works just fine.
