OneDrive isn't backing up camera automatically
I'm running into an issue with OneDrive not backing up my camera in the background. I have enabled background refresh at the iOS level as well as enabling camera backup and upload in background within the OneDrive app. The only way I can get it to upload pictures is if I open the app and let it scan for new pictures.
I thought it should just run in the background and do its job. I'm running into the same issue with IFTTT, it will only run tasks if I open the app.
Is this how it is supposed to work?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Why isn't my OneDrive backing up my camera automatically?
I don't think there is a solution for this.
I believe Iphone is disabling wifi for 3pp applications when it gets into standby mode since the OneDrive application is requesting cellular access whenever it stops.
But if there are some other 3pp applications which can do this in background my theory will be invalid .

Why isn't my OneDrive backing up my camera automatically?
All photos and videos will be uploaded at their original sizes when you're on a Wi‑Fi network. If you want to use your mobile network, tap the three horizontal bars in the upper-left corner, tap Settings, tap Camera Backup, and then turn on Use Mobile Network.
To set your device to upload pictures even when the OneDrive app isn't the active app, tap Upload in Background.
The camera roll on your device isn't kept in sync with the Camera roll folder in OneDrive. After photos and videos finish uploading, you can delete them from your device, and the copies in OneDrive won't be affected.

Re: OneDrive isn't backing up camera automatically
I keep the photos currently on my camera roll backed up to iCloud. All others I organize in folders or albums in Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. I like all my photos organized rather than a "Camera Roll" where all the photos upload to. So I upload my photos manually to the appropriate app and folders. That's just how I like it.
