AJAX get not refreshing the data in ASP.NET core MVC app

On a ASP.NET core app, I am using $.ajax() method to get data into a modal window when a button is clicked. This works correctly the first time the button  is clicked but if the data is updated , the subsequent calls still return the old data.

          $.ajax({
              url: $(this).data('url'),
              method: 'GET',
              success: function (data) {
                  $("#ModalDiv").html(data);
                  $("#ModalDiv").modal('show');
              },
              error: function (err) {
                  console.log(err);
              }
          });
      });
  
});

I have added a breakpoint on the controllers action method and found that its not even hitting there after the first call.

This is due to browser caching. You can disable caching by setting the option cache:false

  $.ajax({
 url: $(this).data('url'),
 cache: false,
 method: 'GET',
 success: function (data) {
  $("#ModalDiv").html(data);
  $("#ModalDiv").modal('show');
 },
 error: function (err) {
  console.log(err);
 }
          });
});
