static webresource is not getting file update is not reflecting in UI

we have JSON file in static web resource and in webapp UI we are trying to get the JSON value updated in <Select>, it works fine, but wen we update the JSON with new values, dropdown still shows old value and not the new updated value in preview, if we rename the file and update the JS script it works, if we change it back to old name still getting the old value not the updated value,

 

any way to refresh this?

Hi,

By design, static resources are not meant to be dynamically updated.

I suggest using a DSS managed folder to store this JSON file and perform read/write operations from your webapp. I invite you to read more on the Dataiku API for managed folders:  https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/connecting/managed_folders.html#usage-in-python

Best regards,

HI @Alex_Combessie ,

this is case for html CSS as well, in case if any new CSS styles has been added to existing .css file its not reflecting is this also by design? so any new styles in future cannot be added to existing file? under static web resource?

Hi,

CSS can be added using 2 methods:

1. editing the "CSS tab" on the DSS web app development interface

2. adding a CSS file in static resources and referencing it in your HTML and CSS tabs 

I invite you to use the built-in "Simple webapp to get started" example to understand how HTML, CSS, JS and Python work together.

You can also read more on web app development in DSS in our new Academy tutorial: https://academy.dataiku.com/latest/tutorial/webapps/standard.html

Hope it helps,

Hi,

First, try clicking on the "Refresh" button on the top right:

If that doesn't work, make sure that your CSS and JS files are all properly referenced in the header of your HTML:

 

<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/static/<.../yourStyleSheet.css>" />
    <script src="/static/<.../yourScript.js>", type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

 

(and refresh again)

Best regards,

Alex

The URL of CountryRegion.json is incorrect, as visible in the browser console:

Screenshot 2020-06-15 at 10.36.04.png

Based on your chosen structure for static resources you need to set:

 

var countryurl = '/local/static/JS/JSON/CountryRegion.json'

Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce the issue using the same code you provided. Could you please:

1. Make sure all your changes have been saved in static resources:

Screenshot 2020-06-15 at 17.25.08.png

2. Hard refresh your browser page and refresh the preview of the webapp

3. Make sure there are no errors in your browser console

If that doesn't work, please send us the complete stack of your console.
