I am trying to refresh my community page which has a LWC with a submit button. The page has a relatedlist also which is a junction object where the mapping from LWC is getting stored. What, i want when i save my records the page should auto refresh and the related list should show the updated mapping. I tried navigating to my current page but the related list isnt updating until i do a hard refresh! I have tried even putting a delay! In console i can see my records are created before the page is navigated. How can i resolve this ?

            .then(() => {
            for (let i = 0; i < this.selectedRows.length; i++){
                //alert("You selected: " + this.selectedRows[i].locationId);
                const fields = {};
                fields[CLIENT_FIELD.fieldApiName] = this.recordId;
                fields[LOCATION_FIELD.fieldApiName] = this.selectedRows[i].locationId;
                fields[STARTDATE_FIELD.fieldApiName] = this.startDate;
                const recordInput = { apiName: CLIENT_LOCATION_OBJECT.objectApiName, fields };
                    .then((clientLocation) => {
                    console.log('client location created >'+clientLocation.id);

        }).then(() => {
                    new ShowToastEvent({
                        title: 'Locations are mapped.',
                        variant: 'success'
            setTimeout(() => {
                    type: "standard__recordPage",
                    attributes: {
                        objectApiName: "Account",
                        actionName: "view",
                        recordId: this.recordId,
            }, DELAY);
        }).catch(error => {
                    new ShowToastEvent({
                        title: this.label.labelError,
                        message: error.body.message,
                        variant: 'error',
  • I tried - $A.get('e.force:refreshView').fire(); by wrapping my LWC in Aura, i am able to call refresh through events but the page doesnt do anything. Jul 1, 2019 at 17:05
  • Made it work by explicitly handling the force:refreshView event. Jul 1, 2019 at 23:23
  • can you explain/elaborate on what you mean by "force:refreshView"? How did you solve for the issue?

  • @PaulN , When i fired the above mentioned event, i wrote a handler for it also <aura:handler event="force:refreshView" action="{!c.isRefreshed}" /> which just refreshed the lightning page. isRefreshed: function(component, event, helper) { location.reload(); } Feb 5, 2020 at 18:22
