I was looking through previous questions and came across re-indexing projects.
I presume you would re-index a project the same reason you would for the whole of JIRA when making configuration changes i.e. updating add ons etc.
I just wanted to ask if re-indexing projects should be done often? And is there any other reasons to why you would re-index a project?
To my understanding, indexes are updated when issues are updated.
Then, if you dont change configuration, or if you dont manipulate the cache directory, you dont need to launch a reindexing process.
On my hosted instance, i switched the cache directory to ramFS and need to reindex after reboot.
Normally you should not need to re-index anything as JIRA handles index updates on every issue operation. The articles below provide some details on indexing and when you should manually trigger re-index:
Is there a way to force a re-indexing to occur via the REST API? I see that you can do a "api/2/reindex/request" .
My use case is when we failover to our standby JIRA instances and need to re-index, can I simply issue that API call and force a re-indexing to occur, or would I need to do someother manual task to force a re-index (ie: from the UI as an adminstrative user).
