Rebuilding search indexes from the user interface

Updated on August 25, 2021

Keep your application up-to-date by rebuilding the indexes that store the application data. For example, in a flight booking application, you can introduce new parameters in the Data- index, and then rebuild that index to make the changes visible for the users.

You can rebuild the default and dedicated indexes in Dev Studio. Custom indexes are accessible in the application that uses them.
Before you begin: Ensure that you have the pxAccessSearchLP privilege to access the Search landing page.
Note: The PegaRULES:SysAdm4 role includes the privilege.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureSystemSettingsSearch.
  2. Click the button with specific type of index.
    For example: Click Dedicated to display the list of dedicated indexes.

    For more information about dedicated indexes, see Creating dedicated indexes.

    Note: The system does not reindex classes in dedicated indexes when you reindex the default indexes.
  3. In the Name column, select the check box of the index that you want to rebuild, and then click Re-index.
  4. In the Re-indexing dialog box, select which classes you want to reindex.
    For example: Select Only Classes listed below, and in the List of work classes section, enter the specific classes that you want to reindex.
    Note: The system does not reindex child classes of the class that you specify.
  5. At the bottom of the Re-indexing dialog box, click OK.
    Result: The system begins to rebuild the index.
  6. Optional: To cancel the rebuilding process, click Cancel, and then click OK.
