In many actions (for example, when calling the input help), you access System Landscape Directory (SLD) content from the Enterprise Services 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 Enterprise Services Builder after you have made a change in the SLD, you do not need to delete the SLD cache.
To delete the cache for the SLD data, in the main menu, choose Environment → Clear SLD Data Cache.
Once you have deleted the cache for SLD data, accessing objects in the SLD may take longer than usual initially.
