Custom Indexes in AEMaaCS not updating in build pipeline


Community Advisor

Hi AEM Community,


We are pushing some custom indexes (updating) via code to Stage and Prod.

But for some reason couple of indexes are not getting updated.


We have tried couple of builds but nothing worked until we tried the below-

We installed an empty package to remove the indexing and then triggered the build. That worked!


Any ideas on what might have caused this issue?



Best Regards,

Rohan Garg

Hello @Rohan_Garg 


Did the custom index had updates this time? If yes, was the version number incremented?


The old and new indexes coexist during AEMaaCS deployments for some time. Source https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-cloud-service/content/operations/indexing... 


After upgrading to the new version is complete, old indexes can be garbage collected by the system. The old indexes might still stay for some time, to speed up rollbacks (if a rollback should be needed).
