How long does it take to re-index Short Description?

I understand AppWorld indexes publisher name, app name, short description and keywords, I was able to search by using the words in short description.

 

I updated my app's keywords and short description yesterday, new short description is already approved and available on AppWorld, new keywords are searchable too, but I am no longer able to search by using the words in new (and old) short description now.

 

how long does it take to re-index short description words?

Re: How long does it take to re-index Short Description?

Likely this would be subject to the same roughly-24h server propagation delays that apply to almost everything in the metadata.

I don't know how long updating the index itself would take, but I would think you'd be safe if you allowed 48h, *after the short description change has been approved*.

No I think app world changed the rule or something, short description is no longer searchable, tried to search other apps's short description that are never changed, can't search too.

Re: How long does it take to re-index Short Description?

sh2sg if that's not working today, it's probably a recent bug. They changed this recently and blogged about it back in January: http://devblog.blackberry.com/2013/01/marketing-your-app-blackberry-world/

I believe I've even tested it, a couple of weeks ago, but I don't recall what I learned specifically other than "it all seems to work basically as described".

Yes I read that too, and I did test it worked sometimes ago. Maybe a bug something I dunno. Keywords update every 1-2 hours, don't think short description index takes 1-2 days...
