SSP uses caching for performance reasons. Below you will find the explanation for DataStore Caching and Settings.

DataStore Cache

The Datastore is used to centrally store parameters, that can be used in fields or processes. A typical example is a drop-down field in a form. The values of that drop-down field are coming from a Parameter in the Datastore. For performance reasons, this data is cached. When a parameter is updated, the new values are not reflected immediately in the form or process. This is due to the caching mechanism. You can set the Datastore Cache time to maintain the cache for a specified duration of time in minutes.

Setting the Cache Time for the Datastore.

1.In the General Settings of the Admin panel select find the section "Datastore Cache Time (minutes)."
2.Enter the required value in minutes. In general, we advise a setting of 15 minutes.
3.Click SAVE or OK to save the settings.

If necessary, the cache time can be set or cleared manually when required.

Click on clip0194 to perform this action. This will update all connected fields and values in SSP 7, without the need to wait for the standard Cache frequency.
