Clearing the Smart IT cache
The Smart IT server stores certain types of configuration data from BMC Remedy ITSM in cache for quick access. After you change configuration options, such as the list of allowed attachments, the Smart IT cache must be reinitialized for the changes to take effect. The cache is initialized during server startup, or whenever the cache is cleared.
By default, the cache is cleared automatically every 30 minutes, or when the Smart IT server is restarted. Alternatively, you can use the following procedures to clear the cache immediately.
To clear the Smart IT cache
From the Smart IT installation directory/tenant-config directory (Linux) or C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Smart_IT\Smart_IT\tenant-config (Windows) on the primary Smart IT server, issue the following command:
../java -jar ../tenant-config-<version>-jar-with-dependencies.jar -server server/smartit
-username username -password password -tenantName tenant_ID clearSmartITCache global
The placeholders in the command are defined as follows:
|The fully qualified domain name of the Smart IT server, such as
The AR System administrator user name
|The AR System administrator password
The tenant ID such as 000000000000001 (default) or 000000000000002
In a single tenant environment, use 000000000000001
