How to force refresh of API data after structure change

When does the data refresh in the API after a structure change? In my case, I changed a field from a Title type to Keyword Text, but when I hit my API endpoint, it still shows the old structure and data. It would seem to me that a structural change would cause a ref change, but it doesn't look like it does.

How can I get the structure and data change to be made in the returned API data after making a change? Is there a way to bust the cache manually?

Hello @steve1, thanks for reaching out.
The ref value of the API is updated every time you make a change to your documents. So you need to publish a change in a doc to refresh it. Learn more bout the refs:
