Issue with Template App Upgrade

I have a template app workspace, that is being used to install app copies for my clients.

 

For some time there is a possiblity to upgrade Temaplate App to new version (old one will be not supported from 1th of May).

I have tried to use "Upgrade now" option for several times. And each time it results with "Upgrading" communicate that stays for long time. Finnaly the app will be never updated.

 

The problem is that end clients are able to upgrade apps that has been installed based on my template app. And once they do this, it is not possible to install new version on app on their side.

Hi @artur_nls ,

 

You may try to ppload your updated semantic model and make sure to overwrite the existing semantic model.

  • If the .pbix file you're uploading has the same name as the semantic model and report used in the app, uploading will overwrite the existing semantic model.

  • If you're changing the name of the semantic model and report used in the app, and the .pbix file you want to upload has a different name than the semantic model and report used in the app, do the following:

    • Rename the semantic model and report used in the app so that their names exactly match the name of your updated .pbix file.
    • Upload your .pbix file and overwrite the existing semantic model and report that you just renamed.

    In either case, to upload a local .pbix file to the service, select Upload > Browse, navigate to the file, and select Open. A dialog will ask for your permission to overwrite the semantic model the app uses. If you don't overwrite the existing semantic model, customers won't be able to install your updated app.
