Manual Reindexing

Indexers that require manual updates have a checkbox in the first column next to their name (Product Attributes, Tag Aggregation Data, and optionally, Catalog Search Index). The example below shows one index that requires a full reindex (Product Attributes), an index that requires a partial reindex (Catalog Search Index), and an index that is up-to-date (Tag Aggregation Data).

  • If the Status column indicates “Reindex Required,” and the Update Required column indicates “No,” only a partial index is produced when you index manually.
  • If the Status column indicates “Reindex Required,” and the Update Required column indicates “Yes,” a full index is produced when you index manually.

Index States

To reindex manually:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Index Management.
2. Select the checkbox of each item to be reindexed.
3. Set Actions to “Reindex Data.”
4. Click the Submit button.
