Problems upgrading Crucible without a new FishEye license: how do I "re-index"?

Due to the vagueries of personnel coming and going at my employer, we purchased licenses for Crucible and Fisheye a few years ago, created an installation, and then didn't use them.  We recently purchased a new Crucible (but not FishEye) license. Per the instructions in the Atlassian documentation, I put "Disabled" where I would otherwise have put the FishEye license.  Crucible is then supposed to work using some sort of minimalist FishEye replacement.

I downloaded and installed the newest Crucible / FishEye package.  After I figured out how to get Windows Services to use the new package (it didn't happen automatically sad ) I logged in, and found that it was saying that both my repositories were "stopped".  When I try to start them, I get the message

Failed to start repository xxx:  Problem loading repository 'xxx' - Current repository index for "xxx" is not compatible with your license, please re-index.

Ok, whatever.  Except that I can't figure out how to re-index, and can't find anything about it in any Atlassian documentation.

Should I delete the repository from Crucible and re-add it?

I don't have any existing reviews that I need to preserve.

Thanks for any help you can give.


EDIT:  Lo and behold I believe I found how to re-index.    On the page that lists all the repositories, I click on the name of my repository, and it brings up a page for that.  In the left frame is a link for "Maintenance", clicking that brings me to a page with a bunch of "re-index" buttons.  I'm clicking them all smile

Correct - reindexing is on the "Maintentance" tab in repository settings.

You can also use REST API to trigger re-indexing:
