force:recordPreview had a ignoreExistingAction attribute that would force a server trip. I have an issue right now where I have two components:

  1. Comp A - Contains a list of sObjects, saves/updates using custom code.

  2. Comp B - Single component with force:recordData, that will display details from one of the records in the Component A's list.

Right now, if CompA saves a record, and ComponentB had loaded the the record in question at any point, subsequent inits of ComponentB draw from the stale cache.

Any ideas?

  • Have you tried force:refreshView?

  • yes. The problem is this on the homepage and that causes the whole page to refresh, which I don't want.

  • Supposedly, you can use reloadRecord on a force:recordData, but that might be a winter 18 thing, since I can't seem to get it working in my dev org.

ok - reloadRecord takes 2 undocumented arguments

reloadRecord(skipCache, callback)

so you can just do a


on init, or whenever you need.

  • If you do this on onInit, how do you prevent recursive behavior of endlessly reloading itself? Commented May 7, 2019 at 21:07
