This is the first of a series of quick-tip type posts on Metacoda Plug-ins. Most of my previous posts have been relatively long (and less frequent). These quick-tip posts will generally be shorter and hopefully more frequent (time permitting). They will mostly be of use to Metacoda customers and may include links to the appropriate documentation pages (login required). I will the posts with “Metacoda Plug-ins Tip” so you can browse the collection if you want (currently a collection of 1!).
To kick the series off, this post is about the forced-refresh preferences. These are preferences that control whether or not Metacoda Plug-ins will refresh its cache of SAS security metadata prior to exporting HTML, CSV and Security Test XML files. You will find these preferences as check-boxes located in Security Tools Common Preferences available via the Preferences context menu item from right-mouse clicking over most of the Metacoda Plug-ins.
