Custom connector changes not reflected in PowerApps App

I find that after creating a new method in my custom connector, it doesn't show up for calling/invocation in my PowerApps app. Sometimes not for a whole day? Then bam, it suddenly appears. What gives? I was removing and re-adding my data source (for the custom connector) to force it to pick up changes, but even that doesn't seem to work every time. Is there some refresh I'm missing?

Hi @JamesM

I have not come across this issue.  Silly question, but are you publishing your updated app beofre testing it in play mode?

Re: Custom connector changes not reflected in PowerApps App

I can repeat it frequently, so it's reproducable. Example. 

 

I go to my Custom Connector, and for one of the methods, I add a new query string, call it 'server'. I test the definition, and click 'update connector'. This works OK. 

I go back into my Power Apps app where I am using the connector, and I reference the connector. The new query string I've added does not show up. It makes no difference if I remove and re-add the data source, close the app and re-open etc. 

After an amount of time... seemingly arbitrary, sometimes an hour, but definitely by the next day, if I go back into my app in design view, and reference the new / changed query string/method/whatever, it will show up fine.

Re: Custom connector changes not reflected in PowerApps App

Hi @JamesM,

I could not reproduce your issue on my side currently.

 

For the effects of the new added featured within the custom connector, I think there may be some delay between Test Connector step and PowerApps design mode.

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to delete the custom connector from your PowerApps, and then re-add it (with new feature/function/method added), then check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Custom connector changes not reflected in PowerApps App

I'm getting the same behaviour. 

  1. Using an existing custom connector. 
  2. Go into edit, then the definition tab. In my case under the Query section I removed a Query Parameter that I did not need. 
  3. Select Update Connector from the top. Connector is updated and I can confirm by reopening that the parameter is indeed removed
  4. Shut down PowerApps
  5. Reopen PowerApps, go to the form using the connector.  When I go to use the custom connection the deleted parameter is still existing.
  6. Go to the connections, see that the Modified date is not today. 

What's the point in updating if it doesn't really update.
