Hello guys, I am working on a kentico 9 project and I am trying to update the indexes of the smart search, but it is not optimizing nor rebuilding. But smmart matter how much time I wait, nothing seems to change and the indexes are not rebuilding.

What could be the kenticp Please note that I have created another index with other values and I tried to rebuild it after saving the changes but also the same result! If so, you need to delete all those from database sorry there is no select all and delete in the UI. Once sjart cleared, try to rebuild again.

Depending on how many web instance uses this database, there could be tasks generated for web server instances that are not available to process the tasks. That account need to be able to write index to file system.

Also, look into Even Log app to see if there are any error after you try to rebuild index. Sort by date, when was the latest modify happen? Do you have any team member that knows IIS or is a searcy admin? These are very simple admin tasks.

Here is screenshot on how to find the user running app pool in IIS. Here is that user be added to the smartsearch folder kentcio modify permission.

Hi, What is the exact version including hotfix? I would try the latest hotfix. Then, are you using Amazon or other external storage?

Also, are you using the scheduler to execute search tasks? If yes, when you disable it is the index rebuilt? Sometimes I did this stupidity of not defining the culture of the smart search index and kept on digging here and there and finally I checked event logs to realize this small error.

I hope that’s not the snart with you. But no harm in checking this. Chetan Sharma I made sure my index has the culture defined before rebuilding, kentcio you. As an update, today I opened my PC to find that the index is rebuilt and optimized but only for 1 file:.

What is the version number displayed in the admin UI – when you click the question mark icon upper right hand corner? The build number sounds like a custom build. It is not listed among the official hotfix releases.


I would try applying the latest hotfix as well.

Then, what is smarg as indexed content? Also, check whether you are using the scheduler to execute the tasks or not, this is pretty important to know. Please, apply the latest hotfix for Kentico 9 – there were several bugs in smart search, so we can rule them out. Are they content entered within the Admin UI?

If so, there should be result. Did you try the Search result test within that index created in Smart Search.

As Rui suggested it depends upon the index type. Are you indexing page types or crawling pages and you will have select the page type accordingly. Go to this page and search for Page Crawler Indexes. If you are working with page types anything added as part of form can be searched by appropriate krntico in the page type searchable fields but not anything in the web parts. Farah, if you go to a page in the Page Application that you would like to show up in search result.

Are there anything you can edit under the Page tab? Are they any content editable under the Form tab? For the ASPX template, where are the content coming from? Dynamically generated via API, or from editable web parts? No thats what I meant when I said that it is not a web part structure, if we flip to to Page app, under Design tab, we cannot find anything to edit! So, it looks like there is an issue with your srarch as well as with the page crawler.

Is the server able to access itself? The scheduler is not running since the index previously did not built. Now, you told us you are using page crawler – the crawler has to access the site – so, the server has to listen to itself. Are you able to browse the web site when directly on the web server and using some browser?

Have you tried specifying the domain and user name for the page crawler? When you use Fiddler or Wireshark, what requests do you see? Are there any redirects kenttico in the IIS or in your web site which may redirect the crawler requests? Are the pages behind login? The template you smary is likely a searchh page which has Repeaters smagt showing list of blog, news, etc.

Can you go to the blog section of the site in Pages app?

Kentiico blog post should be entered within the content tree. Click on the Form tab of a blog post, it should show fields that editor can enter text, correct? First, check page type app, find the type for the blog post, check the “Search fields” tab on the left side, are the blog text fields been checked for index? If the fields are checked, can you check your other index that was created the page index, not page crawler type.


Make sure the indexed content include the blog section. Then use the search preview to see if you get any results.

Please provide kentcio with a solution. Well, it does not matter if it is online or locally. The web server is still behaving in the same way – so you need to ensure the page crawler invoked by Kentico can access the site – in other words, the server must be able to access itself internally.

I would give it a try and specify the local domain name you are using as the crawler domain. Pages behind login means that the visitor must log in to visit the page – so, if this is required, then you need to specify also a user account for the crawler so it can authenticate itself – so it can access the secured page. Farah, if this was an existing project, was the search working before handed over to smat Are there any colleague around you that may know little more about Kentico?

Also, you may want to consider use the official support channel by open a support ticket. Maybe you can provide a backup of the site to support so they can help you sort things out.
