Set a Cache Duration (Beta)

A workbook's cache duration, or time to live (TTL), refers to the amount of time Sigma holds on to your warehouse data before refreshing. Increasing cache duration can improve performance of a workbook by reducing hits to your warehouse.

The default duration is 10 minutes.
