Automated ways of moving between environments that changes connections for you?

What Automation processes are available to aid when moving between environments for Canvas Apps.

 

We use both solutions and export Canvas Apps to promote between environments, but there are a lot of connections to data sources which need updating between each environment. These take a while to update when moving between environments, and can result in missing a change of data source connections by human error.

 

A button or just a simpler process which can do most of these automatically would be ideal.  Are there many options do to this for us?

Environment variables are one way to assist the process of moving connection details between environments.

If you use Azure DevOps, you can explore using the Power Platform CoE Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tooling:

@timl  - thanks, but I do use them, and they still take forever.

 

Also it's more the connections in the App itself that are the issue.
