We’re very happy to announce the launch of our new Magento Marketplace module ''Index Management'' by 2J Commerce.
The module gives admin users the ability to reindex all or individual indexers manually from the Magento admin panel so they can see catalog changes immediately on the front end. It also adds a configuration setting to increase the PHP memory limit for the stores.
Magento Merchants making frequent changes to their stores need to be able to see their changes on the front end of their site. On Magento 2, this is done by reindexing; either by using the shell command, or through the cron schedules. This can only be done if you know how to setup a cron schedule or run a shell command. You also need to have the right access, which can pose a problem for Ecommerce teams making changes to their catalog data when they don’t necessarily have the skillset of a developer to hand.
'Index Management'' by 2J Commerce enables Admin users to manually run individual, selected, or all indexers through the Admin configuration with one click; without the command lines or waiting for the cron to run. This helps store owners and Ecommerce teams to see their changes immediately on the front end.
The module also allows the PHP memory limit to be exceeded from the Admin configuration. This should be handled carefully, as increasing the memory to a certain extent can result in memory issues on the stores.
Following the simple user interface, the installation and code structure makes this module easy to implement and use for Magento 2 store owners.
Please note: This is not necessarily the best solution for M2 merchants as triggering too many reindexes can generate problems on the front end of your store. The load can sometimes cause the site to crash temporarily. It is always advisable that merchants use the command line for reindexing where possible. This extension is to allow specific indexers to be reindexed from the admin when changes need to show on the store front when it is not possible to use the command line or cron schedule.
