How to set cache false for getJSON in jQuery

+1 vote

I am using getJSON to fetch the results from server side but facing browser cache problems. I want the cache to be false. I tried using this just before my getJSON call.

 $.ajaxSetup({
                cache: false
            })

But I am not getting the expected results. It still shows the old results.

I also identified some other solutions such as using .ajax but I really don't want to use that.

Hello @kartik,

Your code just needs a trigger for it to be enabled.

This will allow you to disable cache in all future ajax

$(document).ready(function() {
  $.ajaxSetup({ cache: false });
});

Hope it helps!!

You can't pass any configuration parameters to $.getJSON. As the documentation states, it is a shorthand function for this:

$.ajax({
  dataType: "json",
  url: url,
  data: data,
  success: success
})
So you could just use that code and then set cache: false or set it globally with $.ajaxSetup.
