I am trying to export my power app from Dev environment to live environment, but i am getting this error:-

It seems like an associated Flow cannot be included in the package for some reason.

As troubleshooting step open the Power App, then go to File -> Save As -> This computer .


From the target environment, create a new Power App Canvas App, then go to File -> Open -> Browse


If this works, note that associated Flows may or may not be there at all, or may not be in an updated state. Look for the orphaned Flows manually in dev environment and then export them individually, and then import them in the dev environment, then (if needed) add the association back into the Power App itself if needed.


Alternatively, it is possible it's a permissions issue, and you can ask someone such as a global admin or someone with high privileges to try to perform the export of the package and see if they have a better luck.

@poweractivate  i removed 2 of the connectors which were not in use, and how i am getting one error instead of 2, as follow:-





can this tell anything?




The issue might be with a connection that has become bad.

Try to find the offending connection, delete and recreate it.

You can also try all of those steps I gave in my solution from the link above as a general reference and see if it ends up working.

You could just as well open make using incognito browser thus enforcing clean enviroment. This showed me the missing datasources and allowed me to clear unused.
