After running the April SharePoint update in central admin my SharePoint communication site now no longer seems to recognize my user profile in the top right. My SPARK workflows have now stopped running properly and sending emails notifications. Is there something I need to run in powershell or in central admin to fix this?

    Hi @Tevon2.0 ,

    Please check whether the User Profile Service in the CA is started.

    Go to SharePoint Central Administration >> System Settings>>Manage services on server

    User's image

    If the User Profile Service is in the stopped state, you can refer to this document to start it with powershell.
