the update to Agile 6.4.3 appears to have taken care of the problem; however, I did run into an issue right after the upgrade which required the integrity check to fix. Afterwards my imports are back to running as expected... the longest I've had to wait on the reindex is 14 minutes for a large project.

Good to know Deb! :)

Could you please choose an asnwer and close the thread?

If you have any further question, please feel free to ask.

Best Regards!

Use a faster computer!

It's hard to say without knowing where your bottlenecks are. You probably won't be able to "speed up reindexing", but things that affect the system in general could help with indexing

Hi Deb,

What are you trying to achieve? What is your JIRA version? Is it standalone or OnDemand?


I'm on version 6.1.3 and standalone. I'm testing project imports bringing 50 projects into our Enterprise Jira and the re-index portion of import is extremely slow. example.. 400 issues taking 43 minutes. the one i am working on now is at 3 hrs 26 minutes and is 85% complete. I was looking at the logs and I'm getting the "Could not retrieve LexoRank value for issue[id=34208]. Indexing max LexoRank value instead." message which I believe is a bug in Agile. I'm researchign that now, but it appears it should have been corrected in Agile and I am at 6.4.2. I will say, I have run previously all imports with no issue, but was prior to my last upgrade of Agile. Sorry don't remember what it was prior.

btw this is linux... Linux hw-jira.syniverse.com2.6.32-358.0.1.el6.x86_64. connect to a remote Oracle database.


I've searched around and I've found a registered issue on Atlassian JIRA that says that there are some issues with this plugin and it should be fixed in the newest version of the plugin. Here it is:

There are other one who has a workaround for a similiar problem.

Please let us know if you find any answer to this.
Hope this links are somehow helpful!

Best Regards!

You are welcome!
Hope this upgrade works!

Best of luck!

Thank you. I will definitely upgrade to 6.4.3 first and try again, or check the additional workaround if that doesnt work. I appreciate the help!!
