This article describes the issue when customizing a view, the Custom Created Resources are not displaying in the resource picker.


NPM version 11.5



The cause of this is a corrupt web cache.



  1. Stop all Orion Services using Orion Service Manager.
  2. Stop IIS with the command "iisreset /stop".
  3. Navigate to C:/ProgramData/SolarWinds/Orion.
  4. Rename WebResourceCache.xml to WebResourceCache.xml.OLD.
  5. Start IIS with the command "iisreset /start".
  6. Start Orion Services.
