How to rebuild AWI statistics.

You can rebuild indexes when there are problems to display newly created objects, or no space to generate lucene indexes.  You may also be seeing issues with searches returning objects that don't exist anymore. The error message displays:

[NAME_OF_OBJECT] does not exist. No detail information available.

Rebuilding indexes also improves the AWA GUI performance.


Release : 12.2 and 12.3

Component : Automation Engine



1. Stop JWP and JCP. 

2. Remove the folder "indexCache" or "indexCache-12.X" in the BIN directory of the Automation Engine folder.

3. Start JWP and JCP and wait for new index search to be built.

This will rebuild the index from scratch.

Additional Information

In version 12.3 the JCP is running the rebuilding of the lucene index.

On a multi node instance, the rebuilding must be executed on each node simultaneously.

If there are several JCP that comes takes over this role.

With version 21.0 this role will assigned back to the JWP.
