(Optional) Form Cache
Form definitions are cached for better response time with use case like submitting a request and viewing a request. This configuration is ideal for production deployments as form definitions seldom change. However for deployments on development or test environments the form definitions change frequently, it becomes imperative to read the form definition every time instead of using the cache. 
Perform the following steps to disable form definition cache:
  1. Open the 
    USMHOME/view/conf/ehcache.xml
    file.
  2. Modify the Current Key with the New Key as shown next.
    Current Key:
     
     <cache name="system.form.cache" maxBytesLocalHeap="100M" eternal="false" overflowToDisk="false" timeToIdleSeconds="86400" timeToLiveSeconds="120000"/>
     
    New Key
    :
     <cache name="system.form.cache" maxBytesLocalHeap="100M" eternal="false" overflowToDisk="false" timeToIdleSeconds="2" timeToLiveSeconds="2"/>
  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart the CA Service Catalog Windows Service.
