Environment connection - Dataflows configuration

Hi,

 

I am trying to build a dataflow that compares data from an excel sheet with the data in dataverse. The dataflow is then supposed to only import records that are not present in the database. This dataflow will be refreshed from power automate to achieve import from excel. However, when I choose the dataverse table, I am forced to select the environment(hardcode) instead of making it configurable somehow.

 

  • Can dataflows be deployed from one environment to the other ?
  • How do we make the details of the dataflows such as environment address, one drive location etc., configurable ?

 

We have a requirement in our application to handle import from excel for more than 8k rows. The performance of Power automate to execute the same wasn’t good enough. We are hence evaluating the use of dataflows to handle the same. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thank you @dpoggemann ! Can you also help me confirm if it is possible to easily move dataflows from one environment to another ?

Hi @sneha_valabailu ,

Dataflows can be added to solutions but not sure on the ALM migration between environments at this time.  Please see the following: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/ALM-for-PowerApps-DataFlows/idi-p/437629 

unless this has been resolved and not updated in the Ideas listing.   Maybe someone else will have more information for you on this one.
