No and there are should not be need for this. Re-index is heavy operation and you are expected to run it manually only when somehow the index was broken. All other times the issues are automatically re-indexed when you add/change/delete them.

Hello Kay,

You can create a groovy script to start the reindex process, save it, create a service add the script and set it up to run at a certain time.

I accept your answer.

However, the reason we need to do it as we have on-going problems with the Epic link being populated into subtasks on auto create of subtasks. We are on an older version so hopefully this problem is resolved in the newer version when we upgrade shortly.

Also, re-indexing is not actually that long a job on our system.

Sounds like some custom logic/addon and I guess that the problem is in the custom code.

Kay, have you looked into Curl, you can schedule reindexing via curl and windows scheduler.
