Backoffice

The PurchaseHistoryDocument index contains all the users, with all the products they have purchased.
The Accelerator uses PurchaseHistoryDocument to get the recommended products for a product.
The PurchaseHistoryDocument is located in Elasticsearch/Indices node in the page settings.

Click the "Rebuild index" action for the PurchaseHistoryDocument index to be rebuilt with all users and all products they have purchased.
 

Note: When the user did a new purchase and order has a completed status, then this purchase is automatically added to the PurchaseHistoryDocument index
