re-index from Scriptrunner script Edited


i try to write an script that re-index Jira in the Background,

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.task.context.*
import com.atlassian.jira.task.context.Context
import com.atlassian.jira.util.index.IndexLifecycleManager

def indexLifecycleManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IndexLifecycleManager.class)
def context =


but it's not working.

No signature of method: static com.atlassian.jira.task.context.Context$ is applicable for argument types: () values: [] Possible solutions: build(), find(), find(groovy.lang.Closure), split(groovy.lang.Closure), wait(), dump()

I try to google it but don't find anything. Did you guys got an idea what i should add/change?

kind regards

Hi Ricardo,

Is there a particular reason you want to write a script to do reindexing in the background, as opposed to the background reindexing provided by JIRA here?


Yes we want to schedule the reindex as a jira service and its possible to set a script as a service
