PBI onedrive refresh not working at all (auto or manual)



I have a number of PBI files published across two apps that have been working fine until recently and I believe the recent updates may have something to do with it.


I have had to make changes to the desktop files of two separate dashboards, one in each app. However the changes I am making to the files are not uploading once refreshed either manually or automatically. The files are saved in a onedrive location and uploaded to the server. It is not giving me any error messages and it refreshing fine but the updates to the files are not flowing through as they would previously.


Onedrive refresh is turned on and I've never exeperienced this specific issue. Nothing else has changed other then adding a page filter to the file.


When attempting to update the second dashboard, the onedrive refresh again didnt work (on a separate app) so I've tried another option by deleting the file all together from the app and reuploading it. However the issue now is that even though it is selected to show in app, it is not showing in the app. And again even if i make another change and try and refresh it, the onedrive refresh does not happen.


I am at my witts end with PBI at this point. Things work fine for a period of time and then break for no legitimate reason. It is so incredibly frustrating and is a huge waste of time constantly troubleshooting.
