Environmental Variables in PowerApps Canvas Applications



My problem is that I created an environment variable that I use in PowerApps Canvas.

When I change the value of an environment variable, the application for end users continues to display the old values.

In edit mode, I can see new values ​​for the environment variable, but in play mode there is still the old value.


According to the documentation, the value of the variable after the change should be visible in the application in a new session, but it does not happen. Does anyone know why this is so?


And more importantly, is it possible to somehow make the application show the latest value of the environment variable without modifying the application and republishing it?


I will add that I change the value of the variable from the level of the solution

I have found it helps to take accesses and re-grant them.

After such a reset of accesses, end users can see the latest values ​​of environment variables in the canvas app, I just don't know why it is so and whether it should be so? Or how to force that behavior without resetting accesses to the app.

It doesn't work. Well sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know how to deal with it.
