Clearing and Refreshing the Data Cache in Instaview

Configure mode provides you access to the configuration details of an Instaview. If you are not already, change to Configure mode by clicking Configure on the Configure mode switch at the top of the interface.

The data cache in Instaview stores your transformed data so that future requests for that data can be served faster. When you make changes to the underlying transformation of an Instaview--like you did following the Correcting Data Quality Issues in Instaview tutorial--you need to clear and refresh the data cache to ensure the changes you made take affect when you begin reporting within View mode again. These instructions explain how to clear and refresh the data cache in Instaview.

  1. Clear the data cache by clicking Clear in the Data Cache panel. A dialog box confirms the data cache was cleared successfully and the Data Cache panel reads Data Cached Cleared.
  2. Refresh the data by clicking Refresh in the Refresh display. The Data Cache panel shows it is processing, and once completed returns you to View mode .

Confirm the data was corrected by selecting Country File:/instaview_level_field_country.png from the Available fields panel and placing it on the Analyzer canvas . Review the data and verify the repeated dimension was consolidated.
