2355830 - How to refresh metadata of restricted Odata MDF entities?


This document explains how to refresh the metadata of Odata entities which are restricted. 

Restricted entities cannot be directly called by customers. They are internal to successfactors which are triggered while interacting with specific mdf objects.
As an example, if you change field properties of the field "overrideGuidelineAmountMsg" in SpotAwardProgramAdvancedSettings MDF entity, it would trigger a restricted api call internally.

So any such changes requires a refresh in the restricted metadata.

Examples of Restricted Odata API entities

  • CustomTile
  • FormCustomSection
  • UserGroup

Please note -

UI refresh as mentioned in the KBA 2171588 can only refresh the public category. 




This cannot be performed from the UI or from the instance.

Please make an API call as indicated below to refresh the restricted category of MDF entities.
