Missing Connections when Exporting my App...Resource list is empty

I have created a App. I wanted to export and import to another instance so i could change the connection setup as documented.... (Need to pick what SQL DB it will use)

well I go to my list of apps... click the 3 dot button... select Export package

The Export Dialog comes up and the Related resources list is EMPTY... i should have SQL connector listed

i tried exporting and importing anyway and after the import completes, i have a very empty app with nothing but a single blank screen......... i have multiple test apps in my environment and the others list the same identical SQL connector and work

any advice appreciated... this is a large app and i really dont want to have to recreate.... FYI... the App runs fine in the Studio... i have never added and then removed any connectors....just added what i use in the app, so nothing should be orphaned

I have found a solution to the problem.... but the problem for the original file still exists... 

 

I found a good post on how to correct orphaned connector references on line and decided to pull the app locally to a MSAPP file

 

I renamed to zip, used 7 zip to look at all of the files and as i had thought, there were no orphaned references. but i did learn a bit more about how the app file is constructed

 

I ended up loading the saved local MSAPP file back into powerapps under a new name.... idecided this would be a good candidate to try just about anything, so i started an export and BOOM... my connectors are there.... the file exported and imported as expected

So saving the file out locally, bringing it back in undr a new name aligned the stars and my problem is gone.....

Could you please share a link to the article on correcting orphaned connector references that you are referring to in your earlier post?
