How to move app from preview to new environment?

Looking at this post I was thinking, how can I move an app to a new environment.
Any suggestions?

Re: How to move app from preview to new environment?

As @Rfla mentions above, apps can be migrated across environments by saving locally. I posted a tutorial topic covering the flow: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/tutorials/environment-and-tenant-migration/

 

@mr-dang we are working on giving you guys a wat to easily export and import your entity changes across environments, this feature should be coming very soon.

For me, when I edited the existing app in the preview environment, it got automatically moved to my environment[ex:- perumal's environment]. When I checked the blogs last week, I don't find the URL for the migration details, seems Microsoft not yet published it.

PS: I am having some problems with the connections by using my own suggestions below, so don't think this is the way to do it.

Tip for other users:
Step one: save as local app.
Step two: change environment under Account within powerapps app.

Step three: open the locally stored app and save as cloud app.

 

The reason I did this was to see if a new environment with location Europe could improve performance.
Since the preview environment is in US.

I tried exporting today - LOADS of errors

 

Tried importing - but you can only import into an existing Entity.

 

Assume the migraiton process is still being drafted - but - Im getting nervous preview users are in trouble 😞

I am curious about the migration process. Can we copy multiple existing entities and their data in a few clicks instead of exporting-importing them one by one?

Hi @DavePotts_BritE 

I just tried it and it moves the app but not the entities or most of other datasources from the original enviroment to the target environment. My Sharepoint datasource moved though.  It appears that thre rest will have to be moved individually.  In my case, that is still a major pain and will take several days.

@EvanChakiMSFT to add-on as necessary.

 

The new supported model for moving applciations w/ CDS schema is by adding them to a solution and then exporting that solutions: https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/common-data-service/import-update-export-solutions

Re: How to move app from preview to new environment?

@jo , unfortunately solutions won't work for me since I need to connect a Flow to a PowerApp, and that seems not to work at the moment.

 

There is an suggestion to fix that in play at the moment: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Make-it-possible-to-add-connections-to-solutions...
