To make things faster and minimize wait times, Latitude stores the results of your queries in a cache layer.

How It Works

  • Cached by default

    The first time you run a query, the results are automatically cached. This means that the next time you visit the view, it will load almost instantly.

  • You can refresh data by:

    • Running the query using the RunButton in a view. See the page Run Button for more information.
    • Forcing a view to run by query parameters in the URL. See the section Forcing Refresh with Query Param for more information.
  • Configurable Expiration

    The cached data doesn’t expire by default. It remains stored until you either click the Run button or use a special URL parameter that updates and overwrites the cached data. This can be configured by setting the ttl parameter either in the source configuration or in the query itself.

Forcing Refresh With Query Param

You can use the __force parameter to force a refresh of results on a specific page.

See the page parameters to learn how query params work.
