Field filter value logic (0.28.1)


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to figure when the cached values used in field filters get refreshed.

From my looking at the source code here, my understanding is that field values are re-cached every day at midnight.

Is this understanding correct, or am I missing something?

A little bit. In admin, you can set the database filters to refresh daliy, weekly or monthly:

Alternatively, you can do manually or when a new filter is added to a dashboard or question:

I had a quick look in the API and couldn’t see a way to do the update programatically. Bit of a surprise, so maybe I’ve missed something.

Thanks!

I can’t seem to find it in the admin view – are you also using 0.28.1? If so, which panel is this on?

In DAtabases, select the database thenyou have to select the large database option and save. Extra options appear.
