    Caching Issue of Instant App for Call External Web API action in Oracle Digital Assistant
    Content:

    Hello Gurus -

      Good day!

    I recently encountered this issue when calling the Call External Web API action in Oracle Digital Assistant where the values from fields I'm referencing through the Brace Notation ( {elementName} ) is getting cached. When I am running an PATCH webservice I am getting the old values or should I say the cached value not the new value set by the user.

    We tested it by clearing the cache before running the Instant App and that works for us. 

    My question is: Is there a way to prevent the caching? 

    Also I am thinking of using the JavaScript version of the action the chatbox.callExternalWebAPI(), but the documentation didn't say anything about passing the Authentication info in this javascript method.

     

    Appreciate your help !
