i'm using cloud-based Confluence. Please take note. I saw the rebuilding index is for confluence with own server. Correct me if i'm wrong.

General access to content indexing is disabled by default, and can only be done by the System Administrator. To enable content indexing, contact Atlassian Cloud Technical Support at
