Hi Expert,

I need some help related to cache buster.

Currently in our sap gateway, cache buster is not active so client will need to clear the cache every time there is Fiori apps changes transported to production system to allow the changes being reflected correctly.

Because of this, we plan to activate cache buster in our system but at the same time we also have upgrade activity from SAP_UI 7.4 to SAP_UI 7.51.

One thing I realized after upgrade is that it seems like the cache buster is active because when I monitor the network in the browser, the URL for each application seems like have additional token number such as


Is this the indicator that cache buster already active by default when we upgrade the system?

Is there a way to confirm this?

Thank you,

Hi Expert,

I'm not sure if my question is directed to the right forum here or is it because cache buster is not something that normally used thus reflected by the number of response that I have.

I read cache buster in this blog by Masa in 2015 before this and also in SAP HELP so it seems like Cache Buster is the way to go which involve changing the URL of the launchpad so I really need help to verify that SAP UI 7.51 and Fiori 2.0 behave differently in term of Cache Buster activation.

Thank you..
