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.
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.
