Provide Pathway for Preview Users to Migrate

I am requesting a reasonable way to migrate apps and entities from Legacy environments to new environments. I want to remain a customer and developer of PowerApps, but there are significant challenges if you are like me and you have lots of apps which each use lots of custom entities. Remaking all the entities, and re-adding all the entities in every single app, and then re-saving it onto a new environment will give me access to new security features. But there is no easy way to do it.

 

The export function does not work on legacy. All I want is to get my fields copied from legacy to a new environment. If I can just get that, it will save so many hours of labor. 

 

The blog says:

"Custom entities and customizations to standard entities will need to be manually recreated in the new environment, because there is currently no way to export them from the Preview environment."

 

Is there going to be a way in the future? If so, are you thinking near-term, and if not--why not?

Hi Dang (Brian)

Though I may not have so many apps and bundle of entities, I do facing the pain.
For PG, preview users used lots of entities to build apps, and at the end, migration becomes an issue where it shouldn't have happen or even being warned in earlier stage to avoid potential problem.
I sincerely wish that PG would assist in the migration for preview users.

Is there a way to just get the fields imported? I can manually copy paste the data for the entities that matter. But remaking the fields takes lots of time to configure.
