Make recent edits in the Web Feature Service (WFS) visible in the data interoperability connection


After making updates to the underlying map of a Web Feature Service (WFS), the updates do not automatically show in a data interoperability connection. For updates to show, it is necessary to clear the cache that ArcCatalog has created for this WFS connection.


  1. Open ArcCatalog or ArcMap.
  2. Click Tools > Options.
  3. Click the Data Interoperability tab in the Options menu.
  4. Click the Clear Cache button.
