Creating Jira database indexes [MSSQL]

Hello,

Is there some proper way to create indexes on tables created by external plugins in Jira database?

We have tried to create few indexes, but related plugins (jitter, tempo) stopped working after restart. Disabling indexes helped.

We have noticed Jira keeps index registry inside the entitymodel.xml file, however there is no trace of indexes of external plugins. Is there any file, where we can "register" such indexes, so that application will accept them aftrer restart?

Hi Blazej,

I couldn't find a documentation with the indexes that should exist in database for JIRA plugins, however I can think of a workaround.

If you try to install a JIRA from scratch and install the plugins, the indexes should be created in the vanilla JIRA. With that in MSSQL, you can script the tables in the SQL server management and compare with the existing JIRA for missing indexes creating them on the go.

I hope this helps,

Cheers,

Rodrigo
