CSV Export Caching

(This is mainly addressed to Peter but if anybody else knows how to help that’s welcome too :smiley:)


I am currently making a project (which I’ll probably show here at some point) using the CSV export provided by the settings page, however it’s been about 5 days where every day I click the export link and download the link sent in my emails, and there’s no difference between the new file and the old file (and I definitely added a lot of things in between).

I am using diff in my terminal so there’s definitely 0 difference in the files, so I was wondering how long does it take for the cache to bust, or is there a way to trigger it manually?

Thanks for the amazing product :grin:

Oh interesting. That is definitely what is happening I’m sure. I’ll have to slap a timestamp or hash onto the filename to fix that. I’m not too sure what the cache timeout is set to, but I bet it’s a week plus.

Thanks for pointing that out!

Awesome man thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

It’s definitely “a week plus”, now at 17 days :grin:

Just dropping in to say +1 to this — as of today, I still see that I’m getting a stale file from yesterday, so it must still be serving a cached version for a long period of time. Any chance of adding a hash or timestamp to the filename, as you suggested, Peter?

Thanks so much!

OK, I’m so sorry for the length, but this is fixed now. I’ve added timestamp data to the file to break the cache.
