How can I delete (reset) the cache of a project on demand?

    Use cache dependencies: http://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-cache#cache-dependencies

    You can have any file as dependency that will be triggering cache invalidation, even "cleanup-cache.txt" say in the root of your repo:

    cache:
    - my_cached_folder -> cleanup-cache.txt
    

    Whenever CRC32 of cleanup-cache.txt is changed the cache is invalidated, i.e. not restored in the beginning of the build.

    Hi.

    Thanks for your answer. With "on demand" I meant "manually".

    There is no such command or API yet, but manually updating cleanup-cache.txt is basically the same.

    +1 to allowing manual purge. A hiccup has resulted in some bad stuff getting cached and I'm not a fan of committing a change to one of my configuration files just so I can get the cache to clear.

    +1 this would be a useful feature, my caches are getting big and I don't want to mutate the repo to do this as that will result in various other build systems triggering a new deploy.

    As a workaround you can cleanup cache using REST API: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/985

    +1 ! Would be usefull to clear cache manually (for example via a button in the project settings)
