Export Solutions with Data Records included

Is there any way currently to export a solution along with the CDS records/data? If not what is best practice here, perhaps a Flow that imports the data from a central location?

Solutions cannot contain data, so you'll need to migrate the data separately. I'd suggest the Dynamics 365 Configuration Migration tool - although it is named as a Dynamics 365 tool, it should work for CDS environments

Hi @ravz85 ,

Just to supplement his answer @DavidJennaway .

Firstly, yes, as what he said, it's not supported to export solution with data.

However, you could export/import data in CDS management page directly.

You just need to click "export" in the entity, then the entity could be exported to a csv file.

Then if you want to import this data, you just need to click "import data", choose csv file.

Here's a doc about how to export/import data in CDS for your reference:
