can re-indexing be scheduled for a specific time ?

I sometimes have to re-index JIRA. I was wondering if there isa way to schedule it to happen at a certain time of day?

Not sure if it works for your JIRA version but you could try this

Does anyone know if this works with JIRA 5.0.4? I really can not afford risking another site down, so I need to make sure it works before I install it.


If the plugin doesn't work on 5.0.4 another option might be a Jelly script scheduled via a service as mentioned in the comments at

That should work on any version

Since JIRA 6.1, it is possible to trigger a re-index via the REST API:

If you wish to schedule it for a particular time of the day, you may create a script which triggers the re-index via the REST API during the scheduled time (e.g. via a cron job).
