Reindex all in one click

Reindex All Data allows store owners to submit data which needs to be reindexed in just one click. From the admin backend, it is easy to select all or deselect all the indexes and do actions quickly.

This is time-saving for store owners in case there are updates on all the data of stores. Instead of running command line with unfamiliar codes, any store admins can reindex data easily from the backend.

Magento 2 Reindex all

Reindex notification

The notification will appear right after any indexers have been updated. The notification will inform store admins to know that the indexer has been rebuilt successfully.

When the number of indexers which are reindexed is more than one, there will be a notification about the total of successful updates. Store admins can make sure that their actions are done and check the frontend performance for the final result.

Access restriction

Store data is extremely important, so store owners may wish that the access to reindex data can be restricted by admin role. This can be done easily from the setting index management with specific admin role.

As a result, store owners can control which admin accounts are allowed to access reindex action in the backend.
