Migrate between enviroments - Keep Created/Modified on

Hi!
I have set up my first DataFlow for migrating data from one enviroment to another (same solution).

I can see that the created on and modified on dates in the new enviroments, are todays date.

 

Is there any way to keep these dates as they are on the source enviroment?

Hi @mrstian89 ,

 

There are overrides you can utilize.  Please see the following post with @EricRegnier reply.  https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Dataverse/Overwriting-Created-On-amp-Created-By/td-p/7... 

Hope this helps. Please accept if answers your question or Like if helps in any way.
Thanks,

Thanks for the response!
I try to migrate data using a dataflow in the target enviroment.

I guees that this override function is something to use when transformring data in Power Query?

I am totally blank on how to achieve it, any help would be appreciated! 

 

Update: Tried to duplicate the createdon and modifiedon, calling them overriddenXX, but the columns did not pass over to the new enviroments. 

There was a blank overiddencreatedon column as a standard (in Power Query). Was not able to populate it, therefore i deleted it and created my own based on a duplicate of created on. Did not work.
