If you are experiencing issues with Atlas, we recommend clearing your cache as a first step – especially after a recent release or update.
This could help with several issues, such as:
seeing a blank screen when trying to log in to your environment on Atlas
getting an unspecified error
processes disappearing from Run, Share or Map for an unknown reason
slower performance than usual
Clearing the cache helps to decrease loading time, increase the performance and get rid of cached data that is stored in your browser and causing errors in Atlas.
Clearing the cache won't always fix the issue, but it's the first action that you should take whenever an issue arises.

How to Clear your Cache
An Initial Shortcut: Force Refresh
Before you clear the cache, you can quickly try Force Refresh, which forces the page to refresh the page and reload it without using the stored cache. This works on a single page, so it's recommended for issues that are affecting a single page on Atlas.
To Force Refresh your browser, try this:
On Windows: CTRL + F5
You can also press F12, right click on the refresh button of your browser and choose 'Empty Cache and Hard Reload'
On Mac: CMD + SHIFT (Chrome and Firefox) + R or SHIFT + Reload toolbar button (Safari)

Some settings on sites get deleted. For example, if you were signed in, you’ll need to sign in again.
Some sites can seem slower on first load because content, like images, needs to load again.
