PowerBI tile - dashboard tiles not showing in list

I am building an app with an embedded BI tile, using the "Power BI tile" object.

 

After selecting the workspace (My Workspace), the dashboard (a newly created dashboard), the "Tile" field remains grayed out.

I have pinned two tiles to this dashboard.

 

I am able to insert tiles from other BI dashboards that were created some time ago.

 

Why am I not able to see these tiles?

 

Based on this thread: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Power-BI-dashboard-elements-not-showing-up-a...

I tried to specify new names for the dashboard tiles, but they still aren't appearing.

 

I have closed and re-opened the app several times, however the tiles still aren't showing.

 

In terms of security, there is no issue, the apps, reports and dashboards are all mine and created with my account, I have full access.

I've once again hit this issue, and the "fix" mentioned earlier did not work.

 

It seems to me that there is something at play here, I'm wondering if there is perhaps some internal polling service that refreshes the tile list?

 

EDIT: After bashing my head against the wall a bit more, I remembered the other tip from one of the other threads: you need to rename the tile after publishing it to the dashboard. Even if it already has a name, it seems PowerApps can only pick it up if it has been renamed.

I searched a bit further and found the solution on this post:

Specifically, I signed out from PowerApps, closed the PowerApps tab I was working on, signed in again (without restarting browser), and the tiles were showing.
