Backend Reindex



Back to top

Backend Reindex developed for Magento 2 offers the ability to optimize store data updates. The module's primary function helps the admin update all indexes manually or individually from the admin panel. Also, the store owner can restrict the admin from reindexing. Mageplaza Backend Reindex is created to simplify administration tasks to manage the stores.

The problem stems from the limitations of reindexing in the Magento Default. When there are any changes in the index, the admin will have to reindex by using the command lines or setting up a cron job. But, this will bring a hard time for many owners who do not know anything about coding. As a result, management will take more time and even cause errors to the reindex results.

Mageplaza Backend Reindex for Magento 2 is the optimal solution to make the process more user-friendly. Without the support of developers, the admin can proactively reindex in the backend for any sudden change. Moreover, having this extension will help reindex to proceed smoothly to avoid disturbing the online stores' operating process.

What Index And Reindex Mean?

The websites' index is the data of the products and categories that demonstrate product details on the storefront, which will assist in improving the store performance. Without the index, stores will have to consider the rules of shopping cart price, discounts, and more. And store sites might waste more time to load product prices, which directly influences the increase in cart abandonment rate. 

Due to the changes data through times, the reindex is the action required to update the new index to suit the changes in pricing variations. So, it is necessary to create tables to organize essential indexes. 

For instance, when a store’s input material increases in price, the item will have to increase from $19 to $21. Because of that, changes in the index need to be updated to view in the frontend.  


Highlight Features

Stay In Backend To Reindex Data

The extension provides owners with selections of indexers and reindexes functions from the back-end management section when any changes occur.

For instance, there are some typical indexers which are:

  • Customer Grid: Update index in Customer grid 
  • Category Products: Index associated with category/products
  • Product Categories: Index of product/categories
  • Product Price: Index about product prices
  • Stock: Update stock index


Reindex All By One Simple Click

Store owners are able to reindex by submitting changes in one click. Also, selecting all or deselecting all the indexes can be quickly done with few actions.

The feature is a savior for any managers whose work has already piled up. It saves time to set new updates in the store data. Without running command line with codes, store admins still able to reindex generally from the back panel.


Reindex Notification

After all the indexes have successfully updated, there will be a message appear to notice admins.

Furthermore, if the number of changes in the index is more than one, the message will notice successful updates. To make sure that no errors happen, users can doublecheck in the storefront to view the final result. 


Set Restrict On Access

As store owners want to limit the other admins' ability to change the store data, the module allows them to set the admin role in the setting index. The outcome will help to control the permission to enter the reindex action.
