Groovy Script Runner what does indexIssues do?

I have seen multiple groovy scripts on here where:

ImportUtils.indexIssue = true

What does this do? I mean, I know it has to do indexing/re-indexing an issue, but how should it be used? When should I use it and why?

Ah, I think I understand now. This is not really needed for cloning or creating issues. Just when transition an issue. For example transitioning a linked issue. Then you should index the issue so its status is correct when searching.

Yeah, but the line you've posted doesn't do much in itself. However generally you don't need to worry about indexing issues if you use IssueService:
