Migrate CDS entity from one user environment to another one

I'm trying to migrate my app that uses a CDS entity to one user environment to another one. Suppose I'm user A and I have my app on my environment X. What I want is another user B to have my app (as a owner) on his environment Y and also the CDS entity that are used by the app.

I exported my app as a package from environment X and successfully imported it to environment Y. Now I want to migrate the CDS entity so the app can use it in the new environment. I tried to follow the instruction in this page: but I cannot see what is mentioned on the first point of the chapter "Importing Common Data Service customization and model-driven apps". In particular, I cannot see in Home the "Model-driven (preview).

How can I migrate my CDS? Is there another way or can you give me the specific link?
