This video covers the core concepts of environments, different types of environments (including the default environment and why you can’t delete it, how to create a new environment, and how environments work in Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents as well as Power Apps.

    Another great video Lisa. I just finished a Student Database development where I built a Solution in a Development Environment. the Development included a Model Driven App, an embedded Canvas app and a Power Automate Flow (from the Canvas App).
    Once developed I exported the solution to a Sandbox Envornment on the customers Tenanant. Once they gave the Ok migrated to the customer Production Environment.

    In theory all should work however everytime I imported the solution I had to rebuild the connectors and in some cases rebuild parts of the flow. Very frustrating but learnt alot.

    I would love it if you could do a video showing how you would build and migrate solutions across tenants.

    Very informative! Just getting started. Didn't realize the default env had so few controls/restrictions on it such that all users are makers for example. Regarding sandboxes, the MS docs state: "A sandbox environment is any non-production environment of Microsoft Dataverse. Isolated from production, a sandbox environment is the place to safely develop and test application changes with low risk". So does that mean all your Thrive HR – Dev/Test/UAT environments are sandbox envs?
