„Include Issue Comments“
If active, comments on issues are set as HTML content
If set, no ACL information is indexed. Use only for public servers. Also, in the index configuration (Advanced Settings must be enabled), enable the "Unrestricted Public Access" option and disable the "Enforce ACL Evaluation" option. ATTENTION: All documents on the index are then visible to every user.
If your Jira instance contains a large amount of data, it is recommended to enable delta crawling:
"Enable Attachment Delta Crawling"
If active, only attachments that have not yet been indexed are downloaded
"Enable Issue Delta Crawling"
If active, only new or changed issues are downloaded. Issues that have been deleted in Jira are not deleted during a delta crawl run. In order to remove deleted issues from the index, you must configure a "Delete Job Schedule" (see description below).
Please note that this option can only be enabled if you have also enabled the option "Disable ACLs".
"Crawler State Persistence Directory"
If "Enable Issue Delta Crawling" is active, a directory is required to store status information about the last delta crawl run (or delete crawl run). If no directory is specified, this status information is stored in "/data/servicedata/<service-id>" by default.
"Delete Job Schedule"
If "Enable Issue Delta Crawling" is active, it is recommended to specify a here. If the cron job is triggered, a delete crawl run will be started immediately after the next delta crawl run to delete issues and attachments that are no longer present in Jira. Please note that a delete crawl run can take a long time when dealing with large amounts of data.
Then save the configuration and restart.
