Symptom

  • How to manually refresh the MDF Data Model?
     
  • We are getting errors when opening certain MDF Objects or data objects related to that MDF Object. How do we refresh the MDF Data Model to try to resolve these issues?

Environment

  • Employee Central

Resolution

  • To refresh the MDF Data Model, please perform the following actions -:

1) Log into the instance in question, navigate to Configure Object Definitions.

2) Take a timestamp from that page (Show version information link at the bottom of the page) and note the APP server you are logged into.

3) Make a change to an existing Object, or create a new Object.

4) Once created or edited and the save is successful, log out of the instance.

5) Open a different web browser to what you used in steps 1 through 4 and log into the instance again.

6) Take another timestamp to ensure you are logged into a different APP server.

7) Navigate to the Object/data and ensure that it loads without errors.

  • If you still get errors when opening an object, please raise a case with the Customer Success team to further investigate the issue. Likely causes of additional errors are invalid rule associations, invalid object associations or invalid Field Criteria associations.
