Static APIs refresh functionality in the API Catalog
The API Catalog enables users to manually refresh static service APIs. Use the Refresh Static APIs option if you change a static service API and want these changes to be visible in the API Catalog without restarting the Discovery Service.
To refresh the status of a static service, click the Refresh option located in the upper right-hand side of the API Catalog UI.
Successful requests return a pop-up notification that displays the message,
The refresh of static APIs was successful!.
If the request fails, a dialog appears with an error message that describes the cause of the fail.
Note: The manual Refresh Static APIs option applies only to static service APIs. Changes to the status of services that are onboarded to allow for dynamic discovery require a restart of the specific services where changes are applied. It is not necessary to restart the API Catalog or the Discovery Service.
