When new entity is created in CDS (Common Data Services), it is created in an Environment and you use this entity through Connection made to that Environment. Let’s understand what exactly an Environment and Connection means:
Environments – Space to store data (in Common Data Model), apps and flows. Each environment can have zero or one database. When sign-up for PowerApps, default environment is automatically created for each tenant and shared with all users in that tenant. You can always create you own environment with your custom entities, apps. Refer my blog to create an environment.
Refer blog for more details on Environments (Scope, Permissions)
Connections – Gateway to data sources such as CDS, Dynamics 365, Office 365, SharePoint. PowerApp access data from data sources using Connections. Connection to Common Data Service is always created against an Environment.
