Can I set up an auto reindex

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.

I agree with Kay - my reindex takes over 1 hour due to the sheer size of our platform.  I have to say i get a little tired of the Atlassian Point of View that says i must do this manually, in my own time out of hours on a platform with a number of homeworkers and international staff who want a lot of access hours.

This forces me to sit up at 10pm at night and hang around. That's a little ridiculous. I should be able to set something on the working day that will trigger it at Xhours and just leave a system banner to communicate that it will be coming down later.

Atlassian have said they want to be considered *an enterprise scale tool*, but these residual  "small system" mentality failings that are becoming a blocker for us.
