OData metadata cache is not reset when external object fields are added via Setup UI or MD API
Last updated 2016-12-08 ·Reference W-2753928 ·Reported By 1 users
We refresh cached remote metadata only on Validate and Sync, which would be fine if we positioned it as the only way to manage object and field definitions. In reality, Validate and Sync is just a convenience tool, and field definitions can be created manually in setup UI, or via MD API. We should assume that any change to any of field definitions is a strong signal that the remote metadata might have changed and in such case we should refresh the remote metadata
When you add custom fields to External Object thru Metadata API /setup UI OData metadata won't refresh and you have to use Validate and sync.
