Changes in BAPI parameters not visible in VC model

Hi,

We are in out first steps in Visual Composer tool, and facing a weird issue.

we have a model wich obtains data from a BAPI in an R3 system, it works fine, but if we modify the structure of the IMPORT or TABLE parameters, we do not see theese changes in the model builder, even if we log off and log on again, or if we re-drag the BAPI data service into the model again.

The only way so far is restarting the VC server.

Has anyone faced this ? I'm pretty sure is all about some cache to be cleared but not sure where...

Any help will be appreciated / rewarded.

Thanks all !

    Ernest,

    Choose Tools --> Options --> Compiler.

    In Data Service Retrieval combo box

    choose Donot cache data service get latest.

    Log off from your model.

    log on again and goto the context menu of your bapi.

    then choose Define data Service your import parameters should appear now.

    Hi Ernest,

    have a look into my weblogs:

    [Visual Composer and ABAP RFC/BAPI a powerful combination part I|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/5221] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken];

    also check this wiki entry:

    [Connection Lifetime|https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/VC/Connection+Lifetime]

    The problem is the connection lifetime. Modify the setting in your DEV Portal.

    Best Regards,

    Hello,

    You have also an option to load again the data source : changes done in the data source (BAPI or RFC functions) are then taken in account.

    On the story board, right clic on data source and option "reload component" .
