Move Common Data Service Custom Entities to different database (i.e. backup / restore)?

Hi all,  In an Office 365 tenant, I have created several Custom Common Data Service entities - let's say two lookup type tables, then another entity that uses those entities as relationships for lookup purposes.  I created a simple PowerApp so I can enter data.  Call all of this my "development" environment.

 

So I now want to transfer this over to the customer in their tenant (the "production environment").  Ideally I'd like to "backup and restore" the whole Common Data  Service "database".  At the very least, I want to export the full "schema" for my custom entities and use it to create the equivalent entities in the customer environment.  I then would like to export and import data.

 

Finally, I'd like to bring in the PowerApp and, of course, expect it to work.

 

Is what I am describing possible?  How do I accomplish this?  

 

Thanks in advance!

I think I found the answer to this.  I went to the Admin Center for Power Apps, and from there you can Export Package to get the schema and Power Apps out, then Import on the other side.

 

Seems as for data you must go to each custom entity and Export Data, then Import Data on the other side. 

 

Tedious, but hopefully all will be good.  I'll try it out and report back.

did this solution work out for you?

 

Do you have any details on export entity procedure documented?

 

When I go to PA admin site, I don't quite understand how to export schema and import on new tenant site.

 

Thanks for any help you might give.
