Siebel Applications Administration Guide > Working with Lists of Values >

Clearing the Cache

A particular list of values is cached the first time a user opens a drop-down list that uses the list of values. This feature improves performance by avoiding having to retrieve the list from the Siebel database when subsequently using of the drop-down list. However, this feature also means that updates to a list of values do not show up in a drop-down list until you clear the cache. Clearing the cache instructs the Siebel application to read the updated values out of the Siebel database and display them.

Users who log in after you add or change a list of values can see the addition or change that you made. However, in order for you to see the changes that you made in real time, you must perform one of the following actions:

  • For the Siebel Developer Web Client, log out of the Siebel application and log back in.
  • For either the Web Client or the Siebel Developer Web Client, clear the cache.

About LOV Caching on Screen Home Pages

LOV caching behaves slightly differently on screen home pages.

On screen home pages, the LOVs are cached when the page appears. It is not necessary for the user to open the drop-down list to have the LOVs cached.

Clearing the Cache

You can use the Clear Cache button to clear the cache.

To clear the cache (using the Clear Cache button)

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Data screen, then the List of Values view.
  2. In the List of Values list, click Clear Cache.
