Once your data is cached, it usually remains in the cache until it expires. If the data changes at the source or should no longer be cached, you might want to clear the cache prior to its usual expiration time. You can accomplish this by triggering a cache invalidation request through the Cache Invalidation Request form. For more information, see Cache Invalidation Request.

In certain scenarios, automatic cache invalidation is triggered, which removes the need for manual intervention. For more information, see Automatic Cache Invalidation.

You can view the status of all cache invalidation requests on the Cache Invalidation Status page. For more information, see Cache Invalidation Status.

Note

Browser cache is not affected by cache invalidation. For example, when you invalidate the cached content, new customers see the new content right away, but returning customers see old content until it expires in the browser cache.
