Data Source Environment Variables not working for combo boxes based on SharePoint

Hi
I have migrated a solution between environments.  The solution includes an app whose data is based on a SharePoint library.  There are some combo boxes in a form which were automatically created from the choice fields in the SharePoint datasource.

When I import the solution I update the datasource EV to the correct SharePoint site.  This works correctly in the app apart from on the combo boxes.  I need to delete and re-connecting the datasource and that fixes it.  A refresh doesn't work, and re-connecting the data source using the EV works.

A bit of a nuisance because I obviously don't want to touch the app in the destination environment.

Anyone else experienced this and knows a fix?

 

Thanks

Matt

I confirm, I see same behaviour. 

 

In my case i had removed app from one tenant to another with datasoruce environment variables. However, once soluton improted to destination, my power app was still referring source varaible values and datasource did not change.

I have the same issue. 


When using a managed solution, I unfortunately cannot customize the app.

And even in an unmanaged solution, I don't want to take any manual steps when deploying to the target environment.

I think environment variables have a lot of potential once all the bugs are fixed.

Is there any news about the bug?
