If more than one index is selected for rebuilding, the search indexes are rebuilt in the order they are listed in Business Manager: site > Merchant Tools > Search > Search Indexes. This is because some search indexes rely on other indexes as input and so must be rebuilt in the correct order.

For example, the suggest index relies on a product index. The rebuild of the dependent index runs once the main index rebuild has finished. If you choose to rebuild multiple indexes separately, make sure to run the rebuilding in the order that the indexes are listed in order to make sure that you see the correct changes in your storefront.
