1. Manual Cache clearing is not required.

If you do discover a bug kindly create an incident.  SAP Support Team will investigate your issue. It might be that SAP has to provide a note containing the fix, the important thing though is that SAP can reproduce your issue so that SAP can localize the error. To this end please do not invalidate the UI2 Caches! By this collaboration SAP is certain of eliminating all cache errors and reducing customer TCO further. Thank you very much.

2362875 - UI2 Caches and their synchronization with the database

2. Understanding the cache management

Caches are located in each layer (Client, Frontend Server and Backend Server)

3. Client

  • Browser - No action is required. Please setup the Cache Buster.
    • If clearing caches is required, you can manually clear the browser cache.
  • Fiori Client - No action is required.
    • When an app is updated on the server, Fiori Client automatically purges the existing cache and pulls the update from the server.
    • If clearing caches is required, you can manually clear the cache in the Setting -> Clear Cache.

4. Frontend Server

5. Backend Server

  • Matadata
    • Transaction: /IWBEP/CACHE_CLEANUP. This clears the OData metadata cache.
