Many actions require you to access System Landscape Directory content from the Integration Builder. To optimize performance, this content is loaded into a cache so that the System Landscape Directory does not have to be accessed directly each time that System Landscape Directory content is required.
However, this cache is not automatically updated if changes are made to the content of the System Landscape Directory. For this reason, SAP recommends that you delete the System Landscape Directory cache if changes have been made to content in the System Landscape Directory. The cache is then filled each time that the System Landscape Directory is accessed. If you log on to the Integration Builder after you have made a change in the SLD, you do not need to delete the SLD cache.
To clear the SLD cache, from the Integration Builder main menu, choose Environment → Delete Cache for SLD Data.
Once you have deleted the cache for SLD data, accessing objects in the SLD may take longer than usual initially.
In the case of input helps for business systems in the Integration Directory (for example, when defining a business system service), the Integration Builder accesses the SLD cache and does not access the SLD directly. When you create a new business system in the SLD, the information about this business system is not automatically added to the SLD cache. For this reason, this business system is not displayed when the input help is called. The new business system is only displayed in the input help once the SLD cache has been deleted.
