Powerapp is showing developement instance data.

Hi Experts,

What is the best practice to deploy PowerApp from one environment to other ?

We have powerapp which is using CRM datasource for CRUD operation.


After deploying package in Test environment PowerApp is still showing data from Development instance. It seems like PowerApp datasources are still referring to developement instance datasource url.


To fix this, after deployment i Removed and re added all datasource again manually and after that powerapp started working correctly for me. Is this right approach or is there a better way to do this ? please suggest.

Hi @maheshw ,

You should probably be making a connection to the Common Data Service instead of Dynamics 365. There is a connection called "Common Data Service (current environment)".

Thanks for reply !! Yes will try CDS datasource.

But with Dynamics 365 datasource is this the default behavior after package deployment?
