How to deploy Powerapps to production with production datasource



I am creating a Powerapps form in development environment, pointing to development sharepoint list as a datasource.


If I want to move it to production with production sharepoint list as datasource, just pointing the same powerapps to the production sharepoint list would make it work ?


Note: Production sharepoint list will be created from development sharepoint list Save As Template option. So all the fieldname will be same. Not sure about internal fieldname though.

Re: How to deploy Powerapps to production with production datasource


You've got the right idea here.  No other way to move it into production than manually swapping out the development datasource for the production one.  Expect to have to do some minor retyping of your formulas.  When the development datasource is removed your PowerApp might do some odd things until you reconnect it to production.


IMPORTANT:  Export your app to ZIP file so you can restore it in case something goes wrong.
