On a DEVELOPMENT environment I have a solution which contains a canvas app and other artefacts
A few weeks ago I deployed this solution as a managed solution on a PRODUCTION environment
Since then I made many new improvements to the canvas app on the DEVELOPMENT environment without deploying it on PRODUCTION
Unfortunately, today a bug was identified in the app on the PRODUCTION environment
I would like to fix ONLY the bug on the PROD environment without touching anything else in the app
What would be the best practice to make a "hot fix" to the app on the DEV environment (in its PROD version) and deploy it on the PROD environment without transporting the newest app improvements (which will be deployed on PROD in the coming weeks)?
I actually did just that earlier today. Don't know if it is the "best practice" but it sure worked.
Having saved all the improvements, you can just go to the Power App versions list and:
Select the same version that you have right now in the PRODUCTION env.
Publish that version
Solve the bug
Publish the PowerApp
Deploy it to PRD.
Be aware to write down what is your "DEV" version so that you can publish it again after you deploy your solution to PRODUCTION, and of course, don't forget to solve the bug as well in the "DEV version".

Thanks for your reply... Yes I thought of that solution but I didn't find it very elegant. Furthermore, I have other artefacts in my solution which I don't want to deploy in their new version on PROD. So I thought of creating a new solution with just the canvas app, restore the app to the PROD version, fix the bug, export the solution and deploy it to PROD. But then I would have two solutions on PROD for the same canvas app... Not ideal...
