I have created some new fields on one of my custom objects in SF, one or more of which are External ID fields. When in the Skyvia interface, I look for these fields both on the field mapping page, and to use as the External ID field when creating an Upsert operation. The Refresh button at the bottom of the page does not cause these fields to appear.

My assumption is that therecan be some lag time between the creation/update of fields and when they will populate through the Skyvia connection, but what could cause this? Is there any way to aviod it? Is there anything I can do to speed along this process?

By default, Skyvia caches metadata of available objects for cloud sources. Please perform the following steps:

- open your Salesforce connection and click the 'clear' link for "Metadata Cache" parameter;

- try your scenario again.
