What are the properties that will get overridden when i Refresh the data source

when working with customizing SharePoint's Create/Edit forms, it is not clear what will happen if we customize the fields inside SharePoint or inside power-app and refresh the data source inside powerapp?

 

for example, i have a field inside power app, where i modified its Visibility and Required attributes to make the field required and visible if  a checkbox is checked..now these setting does not existing inside SharePoint, so let say i refresh the data-source inside powerapp will my modification get lost? if yes then will this apply to all modifications? If no, then which properties will be overrriden?

The simple solution here would be to:

 

1.  Save your work

2.  Refresh the connection

3.  See what happens

4.  If you don't like the result revert to your recently saved app
