Do I need to export Dataflow into production env?

Hello everyone. 


I need to know what's the correct solution management of a Dataflow.

I would not move this Dataflow into our production environment where we exports only managed solutions, I prefer maintain it into my development environment and use as target tables those in my Production Environment.

I didn't understand if it's possible. 


Thank you for your time.

Hi @ssimbox97,


If you don't want to export/import dataflows into other environments, then you should remove it from the solution so it doesn't get exported. You could either keep it standalone outside of any solution, or create a new solution to hold/organize these types of ad-hoc dataflows.


If you want to use Dataflows to sync data from your dev to downstream environments, you can use the OData connector. This guide provides detailed steps on how to achieve this.
