RemoteSaveAdapter with ejGrid not working on Insert

I have an ejGrid whose source has been set to a DataManager and using the remoteSaveAdapter.

When inserting a new record, the Grid seems to lose the record. My MVC controller Insert action returns all records from the database. Even when I change this to only return the record inserted the Grid still loses the record.

What am I doing wrong?

$(function () {
          dataSource: ej.DataManager({
            json: Data, 
            updateUrl: projectionPage.urlFor("STAND0101/Update"), 
            insertUrl: projectionPage.urlFor("STAND0101/Insert"),
            removeUrl: projectionPage.urlFor("STAND0101/Delete"),
            adaptor: "remoteSaveAdaptor"        
          allowPaging: false,
          enableAltRow: false,
          allowSorting: true,

public ActionResult Insert(Model value)
        var busEnt = DataServices.BusinessEntities.Save(value);
        return Json(FetchBusinessEntities(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

      return Json(response);

Wait! I just got it working.

I just realised I didn't have a column marked as a primaryKey. As soon as I added that and then changed the controller action to return just the inserted record it worked.
