Hi @amitambure,

You can refresh particular entity by passing entity name. like

http://SPLUNK_SERVER/en-GB/debug/refresh?entity=admin/lookups
http://SPLUNK_SERVER//en-GB/debug/refresh?entity=data/ui/views

Thanks

Hi @kamlesh_vaghela,

How will you differentiate the apps here ? I need to refresh the entities of specific app.

Thanks

Hi @amitambure,
I'm not sure about app level entity bcoz debug\refresh forces a refresh on splunkd resources ( all registered EAI handlers). If you have specific type of changes like dashboard XML files, Navigation XML File OR configuration File I suggest to use entities. Entities can be specified by appending them via URI parameters (As I posted previous comment).

Thanks

haven't tried it yet, but I had a similar request today and someone suggested hitting this on the management port

https://<your_server>:8089/services/apps/local/<your_app>?refresh=true

just to verify, are you hitting the management port? Typically, that's 8089.
