How does it work?

Instead of running the complicated command line, store admins can reindex data right from the backend. Only by selecting one or mass indexers and click on Submit, the data will be reindexed immediately. In case, there are more than one indexers chosen, after the data has been updated, there will be a notification to an admin about the number of successful updates.

Reindex and limitation of Default Magento 2

Indexing is how Magento transforms data such as products and categories to improve the performance of the storefront. As data changes, the transformed data must be updated or reindexed. Indexers are used to accumulate data into special tables.

In Magento 2 Default, when the store database has any updates, it is required that the data has been reindexed by using Command line or setting up cron job. However, the store owners who are not familiar to coding find it confusing, time-consuming and can make mistakes during the reindexing process.

Mageplaza Backend Reindex brings the solution to simplify the reindex process so the store owners can manually reindex from the backend without the support of developers.

Reindex data from Index Management at Backend

Magento 2 Reindex extension allows store owners to choose the indexers easily and reindex them when there are any updates on the data from Index Management section from the admin backend easily.
For example, some typical indexers are:

  • Customer Grid: Rebuild Customer grid index
  • Category Products: Indexed category/products association
  • Product Categories: Indexed product/categories association
  • Product Price: Index product prices
  • Stock: Index stock

Reindex all Indexers with one click

Reindex 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.

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.

Restrict Reindex Action by Admin Role

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.

This is a great and useful extension. With this, there is no more need to use SSH each time I need to reindex and this saves a lot of time. And more importantly, it's really easy to install. Good work, Mageplaza

Perfect, I just wish this was in native M2

A great solution to a well-documented problem. Installed via composer, flushed the cache, and up and running within a couple of minutes. As a developer, it's great to be able to grant this functionality to site admins without needing them to use SSH. As ever, a well-built extension that "just works" from Mageplaza.

Saves so much time rather than reindexing from SSH every time needed. Easy installation and amazing support

Downloaded, installed, and it works! Awesome solution for Magento 2 stores. Finally, I can control indexers, reindex fast, make timely updates - and the store doesn’t lag as before with no SHH access. Thank you!

Works perfectly

Not sure why they took Reindexing away from admin panel but this works perfectly. Thanks for the support, the great extension and most of all not changing an arm and a leg.
