Moving an App from Sandbox to Production

  • 1.  Moving an App from Sandbox to Production

    Posted 19 days ago
    Hello User Group,

    My question today is: how do we move an App from one instance to another?

    My organization has not yet updated to the Unified Interface. We are planning to do this in October. The plan is to update our Sandbox Instance and then create an App there. After the App is finished, I can update the Production Instance and move the App from Sandbox to Production so our users can use the new App and it will be immediately available for all their CRM needs.

    How can this be done? Is it something that can be done? If so, what tools do we require, if any? I want to make sure I do not need to update our Production Instance first and then start working on an App for them to use.

    Thank you,
    Ian

    Hi Ian. I am assuming you are using D365 CE and not on-premise. There is no need to upgrade either of your environments in order to create a Model Driven App.
    You should create a solution in your sandbox and create a Model Driven App in there. Once you have tested it, then export the solution from your sandbox and import it to production.

    Hi Ian,

    If it is Canvas app you have to export it in sandbox environment to .zip file and in production import it as zip file. If Canvas app call MS Flow(Power Automate) then export the MS Flow .zip first and import the .zip for MS flow in production before you import the canvas app zip file.

    Hope i covered your concerns.

    Regards
