Incompatible type. the context variable types are with the types of values in other place in your app


We have a PowerApps canvas app that was working well. We integrated it to a azure dev git environment this week and since then we sometimes get this error in the app on all the places where we use the same kind of Context variable (it contains data coming from SQL Connector that we pass in context variables between the different screens of our app). No changes have been made to the places where these variables are changed since the last time all worked well and now. 

The problem seems to solve itself for a short period of time when we clear browser cache but come again just after re-editing the app (even tho the app in play mode doesn't gives any error).


Does anyone have an idea on the reason this issue happen? Here is the error message:


(We already checked the entirety of the code and there is no bad type assignation to the variables, again these didn't change since before the issue started happening).


Kind regards,

Laurent Lambrechts.

The app checker gives more than 400 errors all related to these context variables (when we try to compare values between one of the variable and one from a field for example but it's related to the fact that there is an error for these context variables) 


Again there is no changes between the times it runs well and the time it gives the error when we try to edit the app. And these errors on app checker are not there when we save the app.
