Hi @MichielPL ,


Do you mean you made changes to the report on the mobile app side and it shows up fine in Power BI Desktop but no changes are applied in Power BI Service?
What system are you using for the mobile app. ios or Android?


Best regards.

Hi @v-xiaoyan-msft 


I have made mobile only changes in the Power BI Desktop, saved the file and then we use DevOps to publish all of our reports to the Power BI Service (using the Power BI Rest API).

I have noticed that if i publish the report manually through Power BI Desktop, that the mobile only changes are applied, but not through the Power BI Rest API. It does add my mobile views, but not the mobile only change (in my case, it doesn't change the functionality of my button from bookmark to page navigation). 

Also saw that once i published them manually, and then they got republished using the Power BI REST API, the mobile only changes do stay active, so somehow it does know that they are inside the report.


We are using IOS & Android, but I think the issue is on the Power BI Service side as it is already visible when opening the 'mobile layout'.


With publishing every report manually once I have managed to solve the issue so far though.
