I have created a block in header

<referenceContainer name="columns.top">           
                <block class="XXX\ABC\Block\Category\News" name="news" template="XXX_ABC::catalog/product/news.phtml" cacheable="false" />           

I need to disable cache for this block for quote.so i use cacheable="false" in this layout.

The cache is disable only for this block in header section (or) full page?


  • it will for all.

Set your block in controller file :


After add this line in your controller :

$resultPage->setHeader('Cache-Control', 'no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, max-age=0', true);

Clear cache and check your output.

  • It use to clear cache only for mentioned block?

  • Yes. It's use for specific block. As per my answer, It will just use for customer_account_navigation block only. Commented Jun 8, 2018 at 8:44
  • Ok..i will try that

  • In controller file ...$resultPage = $this->_resultPageFactory->create(); $resultPage->getLayout()->getBlock('block_name'); return $resultPage->setHeader('Cache-Control', 'no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, max-age=0', true);

Cacheable and uncacheable pages

Cacheable and uncacheable are terms we use to indicate whether or not a page should be cached at all. (By default, all pages are cacheable.) If any block in a layout is designated as uncacheable, the entire page is uncacheable.

You can see more information Magento dev docs

Using cacheable="false" will make whole page non-cached. So the option is you need to use knockout js to render the non cache content, kind of ajax.

Please check here - https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/extension-dev-guide/cache/page-caching/private-content.html

To gave a view how M2 cache system works you can have a view of this ie. page variations and Identity Interface -
