while working with PWA studio venia theme, if we update anything in admin like add a new category or add new product those are not effecting in PWA studio theme instance is there any way that our changes direct reflect on PWA venia theme

1 Answer 1


I have also faced this same issue, although I still need to figure out what is the exact root cause and good solution, but I can suggest you a instant solution that I tried and worked for me.

  1. open pwa-studio/packages/venia-concept/.env
  4. Run commands:

    yarn run watch:venia

Now you will get a new development instance navigate to the same in an incognito window and check.

What I figured out is that may be there is some sort of caching due to which changes are not reflecting on same url.
