Inventory Counting Assistant App: Referring to incorrect CDS name

Dear community,

 

The Inventory Counting Assistant is an already ready to use app (available at at https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/scenario-3-inventory-counting-assistant/ , here we also find the steps for installation) which especially and only build for use with Dynamics 365. I follow the steps mentioned in the documentation.  The issue is as follows:

 

When configuring the data integration in PowerApps Admin Center, We we are do the mapping have to create a task for each data source to map. We give a source (which is coming from Dynamics 365) and a Destination (Which is the PowerApps CDS entity). In the Destination colomn we see that each datasource has a prefix, in addition of the CDS entity name. In my case this prefix is 'cr7a6_'.  Before I import the app (step 4 from the documentation, I test the connections and there are fine. There is contact with D365. However the app is not able to make contact with the CDS entities, and the reason is that app refers to prefix 'cr7e'. More information you can see in the attached screenshots.  I did try a manually change of the reference in the App's code, save, refresh and do on, but nothing helps.   Does any of yours have any idea how to fix this?

This problem is fixed now.

To fix the problem, I did create a new solution. When we create a new solution, it's obligatory to select a Publisher. It's also possible to create a new publisher, which gives the opportunity to enter a new Prefix as shown in the attachment. All objectes e.g. entities, which are created under this new solution, get automatically a prefix which is defined in the Publisher.
