Invalidate Cache

The Invalidate cache tool can invalidate the cache of several views at once. To open it, click Invalidate Cache, on the menu Tools (see Invalidate Cache tool). The section Configuring the Cache of a View explains what the cache of a view is and the effect of invalidating it.

To invalidate the cache content of one or more views, select these views and click Invalidate.

Select the Invalidate on cascade check box to invalidate the cache of all the underlying views of the selected views.

Example: there is a view named V3, which is a projection of the base views BV1 and BV2. If you invalidate the cache on cascade of the view V3, the Server will invalidate the cached data of the views V3, BV1 and BV2.

The cache of views with “Full” cache mode cannot be invalidated on cascade. In the previous example, if the cache mode of BV1 is Full, it will not be invalidated.

In addition, the “Invalidate on cascade” check box is disabled when a view with “Full” cache is selected. That is because the cache of these views cannot be invalidated on cascade.
