Moving Dataflows between Environments

Hi There, Is there an ALM process for Dataflows? We have around 40 custom CDS entities that are being updated via Dataflow and would like to replicate the dataflows from lower environments to higher. Is there a way to export and import like for Data connections and Microsoft flow?

Re: Moving Dataflows between Environments

Hi @KunalKochhar1 ,

Do you want to pass dataflows across different environments?

I'm afraid it's not supported in PowerApps now.

The dataflow could only be used in the environment that it is created.

I suggest you express your views about adding the function of exporting/importing dataflow on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.

You could consider export and import CDS entities or solutions.

These two could pass across environments.

Here are docs about how to export and import CDS entities or solutions for your reference:
