Connecting to Dynamics from Power Apps in Teams

Hi

 

I have created a new Power App in Teams, I need to connect to an entity in Dynamics but am struggling to do this, If I click on 'Connectors' I can see the deprecated Dynamics 365 connector but no CDS connectors, I seem to be stuck with the current environment.

 

I assume I am missing something really obvious, any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Martinmcmahon,

Yes.

Effective May 5, 2020 the Dynamics 365 connector used for Flows, Logic Apps, and Canvas Apps is officially deprecated. We recommend that you do not create new connections using this connector.

Rather than use the Dynamics 365 connector, the Common Data Service (Current Environment) connector should be your first choice if you can use it. You may not be able to use the Common Data Service (Current Environment) connector in every situation today because of the following limitations:

  • It is not available in Logic Apps.
  • It does not enable cross-tenant or cross environment connections.
  • It cannot be used for canvas apps that use the Power Apps for Windows client.
