IssueHow often do I need to flush the Authorization server's cache?
ResolutionYou only need to flush the cache if there is a user whose entitlements status has changed. That is, if you add a new user, remove an entitlement for a user, add/remove a user from a group, etc. One way to do this is to write a ClearTrust API program (C or Java) that connects to the ClearTrust servers, uses the Flush Cache function, then disconnects. This program can be setup to run as often as you would like. However, if you are not adding or changing users as noted above, there is no reason to flush the cache.
