Console Commands

OroSearchBundle provides several console commands to interact with the search index.


This command updates search index for specified entities. The command requires two arguments - class name (short notation or FQCN) and a list of identifiers (at least one is required). If the specified entity exists, then the corresponding search index data will be updated. If it does not, index data will be removed. This command is used for queued indexation.

Single entity indexation:

php bin/console oro:search:index OroUserBundle:User 1
 Started index update for entities.

Multiple entities indexation:

php bin/console oro:search:index "Oro\Bundle\ContactBundle\Entity\Contact" 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Started index update for entities.


This command performs full reindexation of all entities. It has one optional argument that allows to reindex only entities of the specified type.

Reindexation itself might take a lot of time for a big amount of data, so it is recommended to run it by schedule (e.g, once a day).

Reindexation of all entities:

php bin/console oro:search:reindex
Started reindex task for all mapped entities

Reindexation of one entity:

php bin/console oro:search:reindex OroUserBundle:User
Started reindex task for "OroUserBundle:User" entity

Normally, reindexation is performed immediately after the reindex command is issued. However, it can also be scheduled to be performed in the background by the Message Queue consumers.

Advantages of this mode: * asynchronous * can be multithreaded * scalable

You will need a configured Message Queue and at least one running consumer worker to use this mode.

Please use the following parameter to enable it:

php bin/console oro:search:reindex --scheduled
You can limit the reindexation to a specific entity with the --class option. Both the FQCN (OroBundleUserBundleEntityUser) and short (OroUserBundle:User)

class names are accepted:

php bin/console oro:search:reindex --class=<entity>
