Production Deployment

Hi,

I need to know if there is a better way to do the deployment from Dev to Prod Environment in PowerApps, every time we move the app from Dev to Prod, we have to open the app in Prod, delete existing data connections and reconfigure pointing to Prod lists. Can't we have a relative list name in data connections that we don't need to change in Prod app?

 

Thanks,

-Sal

Hi @Anonymous ,
I have a friend who is doing some pioneering work in this area. He uses Azure Table Storage to hold his configurations (Dev-Trial Datasources, etc.) and points his app to this using variables. I believe he toggles an Admin dropdown in his app for Dev, Trial, Prod which sets variables.

Something to the effect of: OnChange of Dropdown

Switch(ddEnv.Selected.Value,
    "Dev", tableStorageABC, 
    "Trial", tableStorageDEF,
    "Prod", tableStorageGHI,
    tableStorageABC
)

You might give a try. If you'd like more info, I can see if my friend will post details.

Good luck!

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you want to do a deployment from Dev environment to Pro environment within PowerApps, without doing extra configuration changes to the apps?

 

If you want to a deployment from Dev environment to Pro environment within PowerApps, without doing extra configuration changes to the apps, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Currently, when you made a deployment from Dev environment to Pro environment within PowerApps, the connection you created in the apps within Dev environment would be invalid in Pro environment, you must re-configure your apps/flows in your Target environment (Pro), to make them connect to these connections existed within your Target environment.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
