Enable Common Data Service connector to select an environment

Canvas apps now support changing the environment within the Common Data Service connector. The default behavior hasn’t changed and existing Common Data Service connections will continue to use the canvas app’s current environment. When adding a new data source, we now display the environment at the top of the list of entities. The default appears as (Current). The Change button appears when tabbing or hovering on the environment and clicking allows picking another environment.

When a specific environment is selected, the canvas app will use that environment for data regardless of the app’s current environment.

You can see the documentation for this behavior in Connect to Common Data Service.
