The RavenDB client API exposes the delegate ShouldCacheRequest in the document store’s conventions for disabling caching on a per-request basis. To disable caching for all requests, use the code in the following example:

DocumentStore documentStore = new DocumentStore()
    Conventions =
        ShouldCacheRequest = (url) => false

The lambda expression used above simply returns false for all request URLs.
