       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 combina-
              tion  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/dove-
              cot-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 socket.

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

       -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).
