Rebuilding search indexes from the user interface


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

You can rebuild search indexes if they become corrupted, if they were accidentally deleted, or if you deleted a dedicated index.

To access the Search landing page, you must have the pxAccessSearchLP privilege, which is included in the PegaRULES:SysAdm4 role.

Custom indexes cannot be rebuilt from Dev Studio. Custom indexes are managed from the application that uses them.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure System Settings Search .

  2. Click Default or Dedicated. For information about dedicated indexes, see Creating dedicated indexes.

    When you reindex the default indexes: all rules, all data, or all work, classes in dedicated indexes are not reindexed.
  3. Select the check box next to the index for which you want to rebuild the index.

  4. Click Re-index next to the index for which you want to rebuild the index.

  5. In the dialog box, select whether to index all classes, specific classes that you list, or all classes except those classes that you list. If you are indexing specific classes that you list or all classes except those you list, enter the classes in the List of work classes field.

  6. Click OK.

    The index begins rebuilding, and a dialog box opens to notify you that the status of the rebuild refreshes every 10 seconds.
  7. Optional:

    To cancel rebuilding the index, click Cancel, and then click OK.
