Flush Index

This is normally very quick.

Prior to Confluence 7.9
--action renderRequest --request /admin/flushindexqueue.action --file ""
Confluence 7.9 or higher
--action renderRequest --request /admin/flushcontentindexqueue.action --file ""

Start rebuild

(warning) may take a long time to complete the rebuild! The action returns immediately.

--action renderRequest --request /admin/reindex.action --file ""
Rebuild status
--action renderRequest --request /json/reindextaskprogress.action
