       doveadm-fts - Manipulate the Full Text Search (FTS) index


       doveadm [-Dv] fts command [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENTS]


       The doveadm fts COMMANDS can be used to manipulate the Full Text Search (FTS) index.


       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -o setting=value
              Overrides  the  configuration  setting  from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
              userdb with the given value.  In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
              may be specified multiple times.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       This command uses by default the output formatter flow (without the key= prefix).

       Command specific options:

       -A     If  the  -A  option is present, the command will be performed for all users.  Using
              this option in combination with system users from userdb { driver = passwd } is not
              recommended,  because  it  contains  also  users  with  a  lower  UID  than the one
              configured with the first_valid_uid setting.

              When the SQL userdb module is used make sure  that  the  iterate_query  setting  in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext  matches  your  database  layout.  When using the
              LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext  match  your  LDAP schema.  Otherwise doveadm(1)
              will be unable to iterate over all users.

       -F file
              Execute the command for all the users in the file.   This  is  similar  to  the  -A
              option,  but  instead  of  getting the list of users from the userdb, they are read
              from the given file.  The file contains one username per line.

       -S socket_path
              The option's argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket,  or
              a  hostname  and  port (hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host via a TCP

              This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the  given

       -u user/mask
              Run  the  command  only  for the given user.  It's also possible to use '*' and '?'
              wildcards (e.g. -u *
              When neither the -A option, nor the -F file option, nor the -u user was  specified,
              the command will be executed with the environment of the currently logged in user.


              The  name of a namespace, e.g. the name of the shared namespace.  When no namespace
              was given, the user's private namespace will be used.


   fts optimize
       doveadm fts optimize [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] [namespace]

       Optimize the full text search index.  This is also done automatically  by  the  full  text
       search engines, but this enforces it to happen.

   fts rescan
       doveadm fts rescan [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] [namespace]

       Scan  what  mails  exist  in the full text search index and compare those to what actually
       exist in mailboxes.  This removes mails from the index that have already been expunged and
       makes sure that the next doveadm index will index all the missing mails (if any).
