Our PowerApps solution has been reviewed and changes to the schema names of some our entities have been requested. Can someone please advise if there is a supported way this can be done, other that recreating the entity definition and all of its components such as fields, layouts and business rules again from scratch.

    Hello,

    It is not doable. We can not change Entity schema name once created. Unsupported way is to export the solution and modify xml then import it agaian but this may break some other things.

    It is better to recreate new entity and related components with requested schema name.

    Please mark my answer verified if i were helpful
