@paburgos, this shouldn’t be the case. Please, make sure your published portal is up-to-date (i.e., republish it if you haven’t done so in the last few weeks). If the problem persists, please contact Azure support, unless you have precise reproduction steps - in which case we would appreciate a bug report in this repository.
