Search Servers work by searching an index rather than the actual files in the database. Some Search Servers need to have their indexes optimized on a regular basis.
Do one of the following:
- If Solr is your ‘only’ Search Server, no action is required. This is because indexing Solr hardly takes any time at all and is therefore done automatically/implicitly during the Solr indexing process.
- If you have a Search Server installed other than Solr, check its documentation to find out if optimizing is required.
- When in doubt about the above mentioned bullets, or if optimizing is required, follow the steps below.
Step 1. Access the Search Server Maintenance page by doing the following:
Step 1a. In Studio Server, click Integrations in the Maintenance menu or on the Home page. A page with all integrated services appears.
Step 1b. Click Search Server.
The Search Server Maintenance page appears.

Step 2. In the Optimizing section, click Start.
