Disable caching in SPServices.SPGetListItemsJson

Aug 22, 2014 at 5:34 PM
Is it possible to not cache the calls in this function? Typically we'd set cacheXML: false in regular GetListItems calls but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this with the JSON function. Would it be possible to add this as an option that gets passed to the underlying GetListItems call?

Eric, Marc,

This issue may ultimately be resolved with this Issue: - GetListItems always caches :(

I don't think that SPGetListItemsJson will ever cache. Are you seeing different behavior?

I will investigate into it in more detail, but yes, it was hanging onto cached results of a call.

I was initiating a call to a list that is supposed to return profile properties. The list was empty, but it was still shoving me cached results. I did several hard refreshes and ultimately had to go into Incognito mode to clear the cached results.

Oh, then it may not be the issue I referenced...
I have seen things like this, and usually on static resources (like .css, .js from a document library).. .adding a url param to the URL of those resources usually fixes it... Again, never saw it with a response from a SP API service.
