Reindexing - what actually occurs

JIRA,

 

Our JiRA environment will be using SQL Server.

 

so, when JIRA does a reindex, or you manully or automaically force a reindex for certain things, is JIRA doing reindexing internally just to JIRA or is it reindexing the "DATABASE"?

Prior to version 6.3.5, without an additional plugin such as Jamie Echlin's Script Runner, reindex was a reindex of all issues. In 6.3.5, Atlassian added the option to reindex the issues in a single project.

Jira uses the Lucene text search engine and the Lucene index is stored in the file system.

Mark,

Please find out below our documentation regarding the Search Indexing process, hope it helps to clarify this matter.

The indexes are stored on <jira-home>/caches/indexes directory.

Cheers

It is reindexing JIRA internally and NOT your database.

Udo, Thanks.

So is it reindexing the project or the entire JIRA instance?

 

The entire instance.
