Potential bug in Updateif with SQL Tables

Hi Team,

 

I recently came across an interesting problem where the UpdateIf function wasnt doing anything when applied to a Azure SQL Table.
Assume you have a table in Azure SQL with columns, A, B and C. 
To update value of column C  to 10 in all rows of the table where A =1 and B=2, you would write the following command:
Updateif('dbo.MYSQLTable',A=1 && B=2, {C:10})
Interestingly this usually doesnt work and data which meets the conditions is not affected in SQL, This is possibly a bug. When the statement executes, it doesnt even feel like if powerApps actually queried the data source(takes no time to execute).

I was able to get it working by calling an innecessary ClearCollect just before this line, the following chunk of code perfectly worked for me:

ClearCollect(TempCollection, Filter( 'dbo.MYSQLTable', A=1 && B=2 ));
Updateif('dbo.MYSQLTable',A=1 && B=2, {C:10})

Can someone from MS Team look into if this is a bug with updateIf command.

Thanks & Regards,
Nouman
