Invalidate Markdown Cache (FREE)
For performance reasons, GitLab caches the HTML version of Markdown text
in fields like comments, issue descriptions, and merge request descriptions. These
cached versions can become outdated, such as
external_url configuration option is changed. Links
in the cached text would still refer to the old URL.
To avoid this problem, the administrator can invalidate the existing cache by
local_markdown_version setting in application settings. This can
be done by changing the application settings
through the API:
curl --request PUT --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/application/settings?local_markdown_version=<increased_number>"
