Updating canvas app to point to environment specific SharePoint list

Hi All,

I am quite new to Powerapps.

I am working through a specific scenario where I have a Powerapps canvas app with a SharePoint list as a data source. I'd like to keep my apps separate for Dev, test and Prod environments. In SharePoint Online, I have got a corresponding list in three different subsites within a site so I can retain the same data source name.

As I export and import apps across environments (or through solutions), I see no apparent way of passing an environment config for the SharePoint list url corresponding to the site. There also doesn't seem to be a way to dynamically update the data connection to point to a different URL.

Given this, my ugly workaround is to go in each app after updates, remove the existing data source connection and add a new connection to the SharePoint list corresponding to the new environment.

I am hoping I am missing a basic step here and people on the community might have come across this before. Any help is appreciated.
