No. The suggestions have their own cache that cannot be manually cleared from the explore page. If you need to clear cache for suggestions, here are some other options:

  1. If the explore is cached using a datagroup with a sql_trigger, you can manually reset the cache for the entire datagroup in the Admin - Datagroups panel. Note this will bust cache for all queries persisted using that datagroup.

  2. You can set suggest_persist_for to "0 seconds" to bust filter suggestion cache for that field. The docs have more info on using suggest_persist_for to set the cache expiration time.
