I started a Jira reindex and it's running a long time (4 hours, 50% done). Is there a way to cancel it so I can restart it over the weekend? I assume leaving the admin panel does not do this.
I know it's little comfort, but I think the indexing progress bar is a little "Microsoft" and not that representative of how far it's really got through it in terms of real time. Last time I did a large installation (2 hours), it crawled through the first 60%, blitzed another 30% and then had a nap between 90% and 92%.
Also, Jira 5.2 and above allows background re-indexing - takes longer, but won't bin your users!
You can stop it any time by stopping JIRA. But before you start JIRA again,
Delete the following directory. If will eliminate the broken index.
Check available disk space. If no space left, re-indexing freezes at that point and perhaps that might be the root cause.
After starting JIRA, do a full re-index.
How can we know what field is causing the problem?
My Reindexing progress kept staying at 0% regardless of how long it passed.
Killed it and performed, checking integrity, fixing the integrity issues found and reindexed again. Same thing happened.
Sometimes Cancel Indexing did not stop... We had a trouble with a calculated field, a formulae was badly finishes (with a plus symbol) and it doesn't finished.
We stop Jira, startup.sh again. Kill'd process and startup.sh again clean. Then we found field formulae error. We chang'd it right and reindex finally fine :)
