Browser Cache Cleaner stuck on loading ... or not clearing caches

Hello community,

There’s a kind of misbehavior in the Browser Cache Cleaner app in DHIS2 2.35 the DHIS2 version that I’m currently using. When you open the app, at some point it give a lugging screening with endless loading …

or some other time, it loads and doesn’t clear cache, so that you can proceed.

Let me know if anyone has ever had the same issue or for the development team to advise how to proceed is such scenarios.

Best,
Josue

Hi @Josue,
Thank you for writing to the community. I tried to use the Browser Cache Cleaner app in play.dhis2.org using the version 2.35.8 and it’s working fine, but which release are you using? Is it .8 as well?

Did you try selecting one by one to see if only one of the selected items is casing an issue? Or is it causing issues regardless of which one is selected? Secondly, after attempting to clear the cache, do you see any error in the Network tab, Console, or Catalina log?

Thank you!

Hi @Josue

When this happens, do you have multiple tabs open in your browser with the same DHIS2 session?

Hi @Gassim
Thank you for sharing your experience too.

Normally, it works fine and these discrepancies were occasionally occurring. I am using DHIS2 2.25.4

In the console tab, I could see that the caches are successfully cleared but no changes reflected on the UI.

And I realized, that it mostly happens when many DHIS2 tabs are opened in the same browser window. Not sure about the exact reason.

Hi @Caroline
Actually, this was/is the situation.
