Deploying Embedded Canvas Apps in Managed Solution



Does anybody have any successful experiences with deploying Embedded Canvas Apps from within a Managed Solution? Either I am doing something wrong, or the ALM process does not currently work.


1.       I use the “Export Package” preview feature to move the triggered Flow from Dev to UAT

2.       I export my managed CDS solution from Dev

3.       I import my managed CDS solution to UAT

4.       My embedded canvas apps are also (magically) exported and imported into my UAT environment (even though they aren’t in the CDS solution)

5.       I go to use the app in Dynamics and all I see is the “Getting your data……..”

6.       I go to the form and view the properties for the Canvas App control. The App ID is still the Dev App ID, however if I click on “Customise” it opens the UAT version

7.       There used to be documentation saying to make a small change on the app and save/publish to re-establish the connection between Dynamics and the App, however I am unable to do so because I get the error:



Am I missing something?

Re: Deploying Embedded Canvas Apps in Managed Solution

Hi @Jhetheringt92 ,

Do you want to know how to edit an embedded canvas app in solution?

There are two ways:

1)Edit the canvas app directly

2)Edit the canvas app via the host model-driven form

If the first one doesn't work, try the second one.

Here's a soc about it for your reference:
