I was trying to create a new app with a connection to a SharePoint list. When I tried to create the connection to the list I recieved the following error:
I searched for possible solutions in the forum, and tried the solution here:
, which was to add a column in my list called 'dataEntityDefinition', which then returned this similar, but slightly different error:
I'm not really sure where to go from here, but any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi @ flugaveltem -
No, this error is not occurring with every SharePoint list. I actually have another app that is connected to a different list, on the same SharePoint site, which is working fine.
Once the list is exported to Excel, and a connector made to the Excel workbook then the connection is established without errors. However, I do need the connection to be for a SharePoint list, not an excel workbook, as in my experience some PowerApp functions and features that I would like to employ do not work well with an Excel connector.
What I mean is that you export the SharePoint list to Excel, so you can then re-import it as a new SharePoint list to see if the error still shows.
You are using Excel just for the purpose - after the re-importment you are working with the same connectors as usual.
Good Luck & let me know how it worked for you.
Have you try open your app in open an Incognito window ?
Remove the sharepoint coneection for your app. In app details, go to Connections
Remove all sharepoint existing sharepoint connections, and try to recreate it.
If you try to create a app from inside the list, it works ?
