I have a LWC which is doing some conditional display. The LWC is encapsulated in a Lightning Component and receives a record id from it. When opening the parent Lightning Component for different records one after the other, the content is cached and it displays the content corresponding to the first record for all subsequent records.

The conditional display calculations are performed in the connectedCallback method, but it seems like the second time I open the Lightning component, connectedCallback is not executed at all.

As a note, Enable secure and persistent browser caching to improve performance is disabled in Session Settings.

How can I avoid this?

Edit: Here is the relevant piece of code to reproduce this: AuraContainer.cmp:

<aura:component implements="lightning:isUrlAddressable,force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,force:hasRecordId">
    <c:sendemail onshowtoast="{!c.handleShowToast}"/>

SendEmail LWC:

import { LightningElement, api, wire } from 'lwc';
import { CurrentPageReference } from 'lightning/navigation';
import checkOrgValidity from '@salesforce/apex/SendEmailController.checkOrgValidity'
import { ShowToastEvent } from 'lightning/platformShowToastEvent'

export default class SendEmail extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;

    // Injects the page reference that describes the current page

    async connectedCallback() {
        // the log is only displayed on the first load of the lightning component
        this.recordId = this.currentPageReference.state.c__recordId;

        checkOrgValidity({sId: this.recordId})
                    .then(result => {
                        // processing in case of success                           
                    .catch(error => { });

The Lightning component gets opened using a Detail Page Button:

Behavior: Display in existing window with sidebar
Button or Link URL: /lightning/cmp/c__SendEmailContainer?c__recordId={!Account.Id}
  • can you add relevant code so we can reproduce same at our end? Apr 11, 2019 at 8:21
  • You can see the code implementation in this post.

  • At a high level, what you're hitting is expected behavior where it might actually only be connected once. Aura had something similar and the fix was to listen to URL hash change or the pageRef object change and that's how you know it's a 2nd time.

Managed to fix it by adding a page reference change handler and forcing a refresh:


<aura:component implements="lightning:isUrlAddressable,force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,force:hasRecordId">
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>
    <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="Id" />
    <aura:handler name="change" value="{!v.pageReference}" action="{!c.onPageReferenceChanged}" />
    <c:sendemail onshowtoast="{!c.handleShowToast}"/>


    doInit : function(component, event, helper) {
    onPageReferenceChanged: function(cmp, event, helper) {
        var myPageRef = cmp.get("v.pageReference");
        var recordId = myPageRef.state.c__recordId;
        cmp.set("v.recordId", recordId);
  • Thanks! It works like a charm! Jan 29, 2020 at 12:56
  • Perfect, I had literally the same issue. This could be seriously detrimental if data is preserved on the UI and then saved to the database. Great fix. Jun 11, 2020 at 19:15
