Is it possible to refresh WMTS layers in favorites

I added a WMTS connection to my ArcGIS Pro favorites.  I can see the original layers within the WMTS server.  However, I cannot see any new WMTS layers that were added to the WMTS server.


Is there a way to refresh any server connections so that I can see new content?

Can you right click on it and hit refresh?

ArcGIS Pro did not acknowledge the new layer after clicking on refresh while ArcMap displayed the change immediately.  I had to restart ArcPro to see the new layer.  Perhaps it is a non issue as WMS layers typically do not change often.  Still I find it unusual that refresh does not do anything.

When you say you can "see the original layers", what do you mean? Are the layers conveyed by a URL parameter, or do they just come in on the tiles themselves?

Any chance the WMTS URL is public? I'd love to test it out myself.

I have noticed in WMTS services in Pro that when the source layers chance, it can mess with my local cache. Have you tried clearing the cache for that layer?
