I can't seem to get rid of orphan connections... There are no data souces used for these connections. In previous version of the app I was testing how to set up connects. Once I figured out how and what method I wanted to use I then removed the data sources and the connections for it. But they won't go away and it is keeping the connection I do need to use from being able to use it.
Each time I open the app I have to delete all the data souces and then re-connect to the SQL Server connection I actually do use.
I have tried everything from saving the app then re-importing it to see if that help. It doesn't...
I've tried deleting old versions of the app and only keeping the ones that use the connect I need. That doesn't work.
I've tried creating a new app and coping the objects (screens, buttons, etc.) to the new app but it won't allow me to do that either.
I can't have end-users removing data sources then adding them back in each time simply because of these orphan connections.
try removing the connection from the App and then also find that connection in the list of connections on the PowerApps site and remove it there as well. Caution, make sure you've removed it from all the other PowerApps and Flows that are using it or you won't be able to delete it.
Hi @sgregory ,
Could you please share a bit more about your issue?
Do you mean that you could not remove the connections from your app?
Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.
Please consider remove the connection from the Connection List in your PowerApps web portal. More details about removing the connection from the Connection List, please check the following article:
On your side, please go to your PowerApps Web Portal, then click "Data" -> "Connections" -> find the connection you want to delete, click "Delete" option.
Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved. If the issue still exists, please consider clear cache of your browser, then try it again, then check if the issue is fixed.
