Catch exceptions when rebuilding the search index

Right now if an exception is found while reindexing, the whole process stops and the remaining datasets are left out of the index. The process should continue after logging the exception. If more than a certain number of exceptions occur in a row, the process should stop.

Change History

Maybe we just need a '-f' option to force it to continue if an exception occurs? It's a manual process and it's good to know loud and clear if there is a an exception setting up a new server say, but have the option to force it if the system is down temporarily is a critical service.

  • Milestone changed from ckan-sprint-2012-01-09 to ckan-v1.6

Sounds like a good option. I will move it to ckan-v1.6 anyway because it may need some work than the expected.
