Hopefully someone can straight up my PowerApps connectors understanding. Apparently, I have 3 connection options.
* Common data service - this connection type only allows me to connect to CDS 1.0 databases, but I want to connect to an existing D365 v9 instance. * Common data service (experimental) - this connection type asked me for a D365 v9 instance ID, but everything is grey out after the step, i.e. it didn't show me any entity after connecting successfully. * D365 data source - this one works but I was told MS has stopped working on this connector. Also, I will have to update the connection after deployment to a different environment manually.
What is the best practice if I want to use a CDS connector? Or I will stuck with the old D365 connector for now?
If you are within a PowerApps environment that has an xRM/Dynamics 365 V9.0 database then the connector you see titled "Common Data Service" will work. The database version in the environment will determine which version of the connector that gets displayed.
