Schema Cache Tool

The SchemaCacheShell provides a simple CLI tool for managing your application’s metadata caches. In deployment situations it is helpful to rebuild the metadata cache in-place without clearing the existing cache data. You can do this by running:

bin/cake schema_cache build --connection default

This will rebuild the metadata cache for all tables on the default connection. If you only need to rebuild a single table you can do that by providing its name:

bin/cake schema_cache build --connection default articles

In addition to building cached data, you can use the SchemaCacheShell to remove cached metadata as well:

# Clear all metadata
bin/cake schema_cache clear

# Clear a single table
bin/cake schema_cache clear articles
