Issue with /api/dataElements after deleting data element from database

Hi Morten,

We can use /api/dataElements to fetch the list of all data elements in system.

After deleting a data element(say DE1) from database directly and calling the api again, the api is still showing the old list of data elements. We verified this in separate browsers, clearing browser cache and incognito mode of browser. This is same behavior when we check directly from maintenance app as well.

If any new data element(say DE3) is added and the api is called now, the api shows the proper list of data elements.

This is tested on latest version of 2.24. Any thoughts on this issue.

Thanks

Aamer.

You must clear the hibernate cache, if you delete a data element directly from the database.

In general, its better to use the API for such operations.

Regards,

Jason

Thanks Jason. Yes this was from one of our test scenarios, but we generally use APIs for all db related operations.
