In Oracle Apex, if you are calling a page without clearing its cache, then you may notice that items have the values previously entered. I would recommend you should clear the cache when calling a page to make sure when your page opens; it should open by clearing all items.
A page in Oracle Apex can be called in many ways such as, from the navigation menu, from another page through a button or link, or from the URL, etc.
Oracle Apex - Clear Cache of a Page
In this tutorial, I am giving all these examples to how to specify the Clear Cache option when calling a page in Oracle Apex.
Specify Clear Cache Option in the Navigation Menu
Open your Oracle Apex application, then click on the
Shared Components tab >
Navigation Menu >
Select your menu > then select a menu entry to open its settings page.
Then in the
Target section, specify the page number in the
Clear Cache field. Suppose you are calling page number 17 from the menu entry, then you should specify the same page number in the
Clear Cache field. As shown in the below image:
You can also use the option
Reset Pagination for this page if any reports exist on the page.
Clearing Cache When Opening a Page from Another Page
When calling a page from another page, then in the
Target Link Builder window, specify the clear cache option as shown in the below image:
