In SDL Tridion 2011, there was an executable to rebuild the Solr search collection. How do we re-index search in ?

    Not to be critical but I don't think SE is the place for asking hypothetical / "pop quiz" questions (even if it is just an attempt to build up a repo of questions). Relevant: meta.tridion.stackexchange.com/questions/23/…

  • Just search for "Reindexing search indexes" in documentation. First try it and then, if you have a problem - ask specific question Jun 21, 2013 at 7:43
  • As per FAQ, it is highly recommended to add questions along with answers so that it can help others as well to the question poster in future. I am editing your question a bit and putting the answer to it so that it might help others (I would have been more happy if you could have put answer to it) Jun 21, 2013 at 8:31
  • Also, as per FAQ, it is not bad if the Q & A are posted just to build up repo as far as it is adding value to the objective of the site. Jun 21, 2013 at 8:38

    Indeed, it's fine to ask and immediately answer a question in order to document a solution to a problem, but asking a question you already know the answer to and leaving it open doesn't really fall under that umbrella.

You can use powershell for re-indexing your search indexes.

  1. Execute Sync-TcmSearchIndex on powershell to reindex all publication
  2. Execute Sync-TcmSearchIndex with a TcmRepositoryIds parameter containing list of publication URIs if you want to re-index a set of publication or a specific publication

  • Pankaj's example answers, "how would you periodically run PowerShell scripts without Tridion?" So a preferred approach isn't Tridion specific per se. Jun 3, 2015 at 21:24
