Reindexing a Collection

You can reindex a collection after it has been created. If any documents are modified after the collection was created, the collection is reindexed. Reindexing a collection does not index any new content into the collection, but rather updates the existing contents of the collection. If index entries exist for documents that are no longer present in the server file system, those entries will be removed.

To reindex a collection, perform the following steps.
