Updates to Roku Direct Publisher

When I make a change on my JSON file, and I upload that to my server, do I have to go into my Developer Roku page and click "Refresh Now" under "feed status"? Or will it automatically update the content after some time?

Re: Updates to Roku Direct Publisher

If the channel isn't published yet, then yes, "Refresh Now."  

If your channel is published, in my case at least, it automatically refreshes 3 times a day; you can see the times that they have been refreshed. I don't have any manual control to refresh my published channel.

So, I created a mirror channel that I do not publish, where I test my JSON file (with a different name). I "refresh now" and if all goes well, I upload my JSON file for my published channel.
