Clearing the Cache for a Data Source Configuration

You can manually clear the cache for a data source configuration.

To clear the cache for a data source configuration:

  1. Make sure you are logged in as a Composer administrator.

  2. Select Sources on the UI menu () or the top-level navigation menu, or select the Sources box on the Home page. The Sources page appears.

  3. In the table on the Sources page, locate the row displaying the data source configuration with the cache you want to clear.

  4. Select in the Clear Cache column of the table.

    The cache is cleared for the data source configuration. Data is freshly loaded into the Composer cache the next time it is requested from the data source. For more information about data caching or to disable it, see How Composer Caches Data.

You can force Composer to bypass the visualization cache and query the underlying data source by selecting Refresh Data on a Composer dashboard menu.
