Create PowerApps Connection to specific Dynamics 365 instance

Hi!

 

We have some Dynamics 365 instances in our tenant.

Now I want to connect to one of them from PowerApps to update data there. But as I can see at PowerApps / Data / Connections, I have no possibility to set the correct instance of Dynamics 365.
With the result, that my App is talking to the wrong instance.

 

Can you tell me please, where I can change the Dynamics instance on PowerApps?

 

Best,

Robin

Hi @RobinPi ,

 

According to the documentation below, when you choose a dataset for the connection, the dataset will correspond to the instance of Dynamics 365.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections/connection-dynamics-crmonli...

Under Connections, select the connection that you want, and then choose a dataset, which corresponds to the instance of Dynamics 365 that you'll manage in the app.

Thank you!

I am really new in PowerApps (just inherited this from a colleague) and "datasets" gives me the hint I needed!
