Rebuild Search Index refreshes your content and rebuilds the search index. You may need to refresh your content if you notice anything is missing from My Activity Stream , Space Activity Stream , a Page Builder page, or from your Search results. Your intranet data is stored in a database on a separate server, and transferring this data from the database server to the web server impacts performance of your site. We implemented a feature which transfers your data from the database server to the web servers memory when your site is started, making your content available in local memory for better speed performance.
Clicking Rebuild Search Index will remove content from Page Builder pages and Search until the process finishes reinserting your database content into server memory. This could take a few minutes depending on how much content you have. Do not close the browser window. We recommend rebuilding your search index during non-business hours.
