In the old interface for customisation, I was able to create a report in the default or a new solution which I could then export and import into a different crm environment.
I can't see anywhere in the new PowerApps interface where I can do this.
I've read some partially conflicting advice on the ability to include reports in a solution:
This article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/model-driven-apps/add-reporting-to-app) states "Reports are solution aware. Adding a report as a component to a solution makes it become a single unit of software that extends Power Apps functionality and the user interface. Only reports that are visible to the organization can be added to solutions."
But this article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customerengagement/on-premises/customize/customize-organize-reports) states "In Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises), reports are solution aware. Adding a report as a component to a solution makes it become a single unit of software that extends Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises) functionality and the user interface. Only reports that are organization owned or visible to the organization can be added to solutions."
Can anyone provide any advice on if it is still possible to add a report to a solution, or if not, what's a good way to transport reports between environments (TEST to PROD etc)
Yes, there is really no reporting component in the PowerApps interface, so you cannot create system reports in it.
But you can add a report to a solution.
In the PowerApps interface, go to Solutions and open a custom solution.
Click Add existing > Report, select reports and add them. Finally publish all customizations. The report is added to the solution.
To create a system solution, you could do it through the OOTB report editor, without having to enter the new or old interface for customisation.
Edit a report (you could edit it through Advanced Find), on the Administration tab, see if Viewable By is set to Organization. If it is Organization, then this report is a system report and can be added to the solution.
Hi Again Lu Hao!
thanks for that info. It worked! I'm sure I tried all of this yesterday but couldn't see the reports I created in the list of reports I could add to a solution... not such issues today
