Breaking: #75324 - ReferenceIndex CLI command changed

See forge#75324


The Reference Index Updater Command Line command has been changed to use a Symfony Command.

The command to update the reference index on non-composer-mode installations is now called on the command line via typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 referenceindex:update.

To just check the reference index, the option -c (alternatively the property "check" can be used) is used like this typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 referenceindex:update -c

For installations set up via composer, the typo3 CLI binary is available in the "bin/" directory directly inside the project root.

The command can be used like this:

# update the reference index
bin/typo3 referenceindex:update
# check the reference index
bin/typo3 referenceindex:update -c
bin/typo3 referenceindex:update --check

The additional option --silent does not output anything when running the CLI command.


Calling the command via the old syntax typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel refindex will not work anymore.

Affected Installations

Any existing installation upgrading to TYPO3 v8 with a (e.g. cron) CLI script, running the reference index update via the typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh.


Change the CLI scripts inside your installation to the new binary path.
