Forest Admin does not refresh data collections

Feature(s) impacted

We’ve created more collections in our Mongo database.
We ran both

forest schema:update


forest schema:apply

To generate the models, routes, etc.

Observed behavior

The Forest Admin does not show the newly added data collections:

Expected behavior

We expect to see all of our Mongo collections (similar to multiple tables in SQL)

Hi @Anthony_Wentzel :wave: welcome to our community.
By default Forest Admin hide new stuff like collection or field.
You need to unhide it from the layout editor.

Let ne know :pray:
