doveadm-index - Index mailboxes
doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] [-q] [-n max_recent] mailbox doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] -A [-q] [-n max_recent] mailbox doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] -u user [-q] [-n max_recent] mailbox
Add unindexed messages in a mailbox into index/cache file. If full text search is enabled, also add unindexed messages to the fts database. The caching adds only the fields that were previously added to the mailbox's caching decisions, so it won't do anything useful for mail- boxes that user's client hasn't accessed yet. You can use doveadm dump command to show a specific mailbox's current caching decisions. Messages can also be added automatically to full text search index using: plugin { ... fts_autoindex = yes } in /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-plugin.conf.
Global doveadm(1) options: -D Enables verbosity and debug messages. -v Enables verbosity, including progress counter. Command specific options: -A If the -A option is present, the command will be performed for all users. Using this option in combination with system users from userdb { driver = passwd } is not recommended, because it contains also users with a lower UID than the one configured with the first_valid_uid setting. When the SQL userdb module is used make sure that the iterate_query setting in /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches your data- base layout. When using the LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in /etc/dovecot/dove- cot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP schema. Otherwise doveadm(1) will be unable to iterate over all users. -n max_recent An integer value, which specifies the maximum number of \Recent messages in mailboxes. If the mailbox contains more than max_recent messages with \Recent flag set, the mailbox will not be indexed. This may be useful to avoid unnecessary indexing for large mail- boxes that are never opened. -q Queues the indexing to be run by indexer process. Without -q the indexing is done directly by the doveadm(1) process. Some back- ends like fts-lucene can't handle multiple processes updating the indexes simultaneously, so -q should usually be used on produc- tion. -S socket_path The option's argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket, or a hostname and port (hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host via a TCP socket. This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the given socket. -u user/mask Run the command only for the given user. It's also possible to use '*' and '?' wildcards (e.g. -u * When neither the -A option nor -u user was specified, the command will be executed with the environment of the currently logged in user.
mailbox The name of the mailbox to index.
Index bob's INBOX: doveadm index -u bob INBOX
