Product specification

PITS Backend Indexer is a Magento 2 extension developed by PIT solutions which enables admin users to update individual or all indexes manually from the admin panel easily instead of using command line user-interface (CLI). By default, Magento 2 provides command-line re-indexing functionality only which can be hard for the admin users who are not so familiar with the command prompt.


  • PITS Backend Indexer provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to re-index the indexes easily from the admin panel of the website.
  • The extension allows individual and mass indexing of the database.
  • Supports access control for admin users.
