How To Migrate Power Apps Across Tenants

Power Apps has the feature to import and export applications in a different environment or migrate it across any tenants. It is very easy when it comes to standalone Power Apps and it is also possible to migrate list-based apps as well but not in a straight way. 

Power Apps may contain many resources like connections, custom connectors, Power Automate, On-Premise resources, and Dataverse connections. These resources will all be included in the app package that is exported and it will be configured while importing the app. While exporting the app it won't contain any app data, all the codes, and rules will be stored in the source tenant. These data will migrate to the target tenant while importing the app.
