last re-index time of jira



Is there a way to determine when last time JIRA (currently on 6.4) was re-indexed?

This widget could not be displayed.

Not in the UI that I can think of directly. 

But the log will have "indexing" lines in it, and I think the admin audit logging will catch it as well, as long as it is enabled.

I'm not entirely sure how much use it might be though - the index is also updated whenever an issue is touched, so technically, the system was partially re-indexed the last time you used it!  I'm guessing you mean one of the full re-indexes though (or project re-index?)

Thanks Nic,


I was referring to admin full-index. Will look into audit logs.



Hi @shailesh ligade2 Did you find it on the logs?

@Daniel Alonso though you posted this a while ago I figured I'd share the below

Current Workaround

  • Proceed to JIRA HOME > Cache > Indexes
  • Check when last this folder was modified.

This is from:

Thank you @john morrissey very useful :)

@Daniel Alonso though I'm not sure I trust that as my JIRA HOME > Cache > Indexes folder has a time stamp of the installation date though indexes inside have newer dates.  I'm still piecing it together so will update here with what I find
