To access the managed solutions of your agent-facing copilot solution, go to the “Power Apps solution viewer” and click on the “Managed” tab.

Several options related to the copilot are shown to you. One thing to keep in mind is that unpublished updates and changes to the agent-facing copilot lead to layers that cannot be maintained. Before erasing the solution, remove the unmanaged layers.

  • Choose the “Default” solution from the Power Apps solution page’s “Unmanaged” tab. Within the copilot subcomponent, locate the subject where you made the prior adjustments. Find and choose “Advanced” from the menu. Locate the solution layers and remove those that aren’t under management.

  • Find the name of each knowledge source and click on it.
  • On the command bar, click “Delete”. Review and approve the deletion. Processes of deletion are complete in a matter of minutes. Remove, one by one, all of the copilot’s answers linked to their knowledge sources.
