Multiple SharePoint data sources in Power Apps

I just created a new Canvas app and am trying to connect to a data source, so I click on the data icon on the left of Power Apps Studio, Click on the "Add data" button, search for sharepoint, select "SharePoint", and it gives me 2 instances of my work email. So, it looks like I have 2 different sources. If I select the top one, I get a list of sites on the right under "Connect to a SharePoint site". The other shows nothing. Is there a way to remove the 2nd instance of my SharePoint data source?

These are connectors you have defined.  So, you need to look at the Data Connections tab of the main PowerApps studio screen to see all the defined connections.

This will show all the connections and you can find them both there.

I would caution about deleting them though.  Before you do so, click on the connection and then review these two areas:

To make sure that you don't have apps or flows that depend on that connection.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

@RandyHayes I don't have those options. This is what I am seeing:

You missed a part - "look at the Data Connections tab of the main PowerApps studio screen"

You are in your app.  Go back to the PowerApps studio home screen.

@RandyHayes I am really sorry if I am missing the obvious, but if I go back to the home screen, I still see the same thing:

Please let me know if I am still missing the obvious.

Yes, missing the obvious.  You are editing an App.  You will not see this here.

Go to powerapps.com and sign in.  That is the screen that shows all your apps and everything else.  That is the design studio home page.  In there you will see what I am referring to.

@RandyHayes Ah, that makes sense. I can now see both accounts. Is there a way I can tell which of the 2 connections I should delete?

Good deal!

Yes, you need to look at those two tabs I mentioned for Apps and Flows.  If one of your connections shows nothing in either, then you can remove it.  However, if it shows any apps or flows, then you need to determine if those are apps or flows of value, because once you remove the connection, those will all break.

@RandyHayes Thanks for your reply. I was able to delete one of the 2 of the connections. When I click on delete for the other one, it says there is an app connected to it, but if I click on Apps, it's not there. I don't believe I need that app, but would like to see it before I delete the connection. Is there a way to find the app?
