2515741 - How to refresh Odata Metadata via an API call


  • We have an option to refresh the Odata API Metadata via UI
  • However we would like to automate this process and so would like to schedule it via an API call




     1. This activity is a simple 1minute task when done via UI.

     2. However if you want to schedule this activity, it has to be done via an API call and for that, you just need to trigger below API call and it will do the work.

Note: There are no side effects or performance interruptions of performing a metadata refresh.
