Because Magmi running outside magento. /magmi/integration/scripts/mycode.php I included files like below

Mage::getSingleton(‘fpc/fpc’) ->clean(sha1(‘product_1738));

On debuging. 1) I found SHA1 is building right tag 2) Clean function is working. Even $res in clean function is 1 as clean return.

Re: How to clear cache of single product

Hello @dvyas_chts,



If you really wanted to you could also clean just one or more cache types. This is actually how the admin section does it. Under Mage_Adminhtml_CacheController::massRefreshAction

You can see that it loops through all the parameters types and calls the following

$tags = Mage::app()->getCacheInstance()->cleanType($type);
Mage::dispatchEvent('adminhtml_cache_refresh_type', array('type' => $type));$updatedTypes++;

Possible types are as follows:

  1. config
  2. layout
  3. block_html
  4. translate
  5. collections
  6. eav
  7. config_api
  8. config_api2

And these can be returned by calling Mage::app()->getCacheInstance()->getTypes();
