knife-index(1) Rebuild the search index on a Chef Server


knife index rebuild (options)
-y, --yes
don't bother to ask if I'm sure


Rebuilds all the search indexes on the server. This is accomplished by deleting all objects from the search index, and then forwarding each item in the database to chef-expander(8) via rabbitmq-server(1). Depending on the number of objects in the database, it may take some time for all objects to be indexed and available for search.
