Canvas Apps stay in environment after copying

Has anyone encountered this scenario?

 

A managed solution in production environment contains a canvas app.

 

Copy production environment to a sandbox environment (eg a pre-prod environment). 

In the sandbox environment, the app included in the managed solution is still connected to the production environment and is not connected to the sandbox?

Hello,

 

Can you please elaborate further on "still connected to the production environment" ? Do you get some errors when trying to open canvas app in your pre-prod environment ?

 

Please also refer to the known limitations of canvas app and flows inside the solution:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/common-data-service/solutions-overview#known-limita...

 

"Database operations such as backup, restore, and copy are not supported for canvas apps and flows. These operations can corrupt canvas apps and flows."

It was weird. The app itself uses CDS connections that use the “current environment.”  Despite this app being launched from the CDS Test environment, it was actually still connected to the CDS Production environment. A standard practice in our org is to create a “staging” environment before any major release.  We normally do this by making a Copy of the production environment to the staging environment. If doing this corrupts canvas apps that are in managed solutions... then how can we follow ALM practices?
