Changing Connections in Connection References on a Managed Solution

A connection reference is a component in a solution that holds information about a connector. It can be used by both a Canvas app and Power Automate flows. When importing a managed solution to an environment, the user is asked to either select an existing connection or create a new one. However, once a managed solution is imported, it cannot be edited as shown below

The solution to this is to use the Default Solution, which is a special solution that holds all the components within the environment.

Go to the Default Solution as shown below

To change a connection in a connection reference:

  1. Go to Connection references
  2. Select the connection reference you want to edit
  3. Click “Edit” button.

Change the connection and then click Save

This will update the connection to a new user.
