Canvas-app makers can choose an environment when they connect to one or more entities in Common Data Service. Before this change, makers could connect to entities only in the environment where the canvas app was deployed. The current environment is useful for apps that are built and run in a single environment or that migrate through environments for development and production. With this feature, app makers can choose a specific environment, which is useful for referencing a separate existing environment within an app. In this case, the data source doesn't change when the app is migrated to another environment.
