Re-Indexing Issue: issues missing from search and Agile board

Re-indexed JIRA this morning due to workflow updates for new projects. However, the re-indexing caused issues to be missing from planned versions or to not be searched for from the issue navigator or the quick search. However, the issues is still present in JIRA.

What give?

Definitelty need to be reading the log file for the indexing on this one.

I would suggest to clear the cache before re-indexing so that will remove currpted cache and load back your all issue in order it was before.
