We have discovered that in DXA after updating various configuration components and republishing, the app pool must be recycled for the newly published settings to take place. From a technical perspective recycling the app pool makes sense, but from a functional perspective if IT still has to be involved to release the changes, it negates the purpose of all this functionality (avoid the hassle and just keep it all in the codebase of the web app).
We have tried updating the
version of field in the
HTML Design Configuration Component, but it still seems to require the app pool recycle.
So I am wondering, is there is some setting we missed that allows the web app to show the changes upon republish of the settings?
