Rebuilding News streams

If the synchronization of content or the users of a News stream is lost, you can rebuild the News stream. A stream rebuild verifies all place memberships against the rules of the stream, and corrects any issues, similar to the way a search index or browse system rebuild works.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > News

The Activity Engine service handles a number of key features in the Jive application including streams for places and people. Because the Activity Engine is a remote system and users change place membership at will, there may be times when those kinds of changes are not propagated correctly and user and streams get out-of-sync. For example, a stream could get out of sync if you lose internet connectivity while you're creating or editing it.

During a rebuild, every member of the audience for a News stream you select is verified against the stream's rules and any out-of-sync issues are corrected.

To rebuild a News stream:

  1. In the Admin Console, go to System > Settings > News
  2. Under (Publication) Rebuild, select a stream to rebuild.
  3. Click Rebuild.
