I cannot see new customers in my M2 backend customers list and I figure out it's happening because my "Customer Grid" is not reindexed(Reindex required), Here is manual method to re-index CLI: php bin/magento indexer:reindex but how to make reindex automatically? like cronjob?

  • by doing reindex it's Skipping customer_grid? – Jackson Feb 8 '17 at 9:34

That's correct. In Magento 2, the indexing process is triggerred by the cron and cannot be triggered manually anymore.

To setup your cron I suggest you follow the official documentation: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-cron.html

Had the same problem after a migration from 1.9.x to 2.1.x

php bin/magento cron:run

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

• Flush Magento cache

Make sure you setup your crons correctly as @Raphael suggested
