Hi there,

I am getting many errors like this in my worker instance: Thinking Sphinx: Process listing_delta failed with RuntimeError: Action blocked - 0 failed attempts. As far as I have been able to deduce (I haven't develop this part of the platform), it has to do with the Delta Indexing, and it might happen because I am using the Wooden plan of Flying Sphinx in Heroku. Am I right?

If that is the case, how could I stop the delta indexing?

Thanks for your time!

    Hi Jose

    You are indeed correct - the Wooden plan doesn't allow delta indexing.

    If you want to disable them, you'll need to remove the delta option from your index definitions. In TS v3, it's one of the initial arguments, and otherwise it's via set_property in TS v1/v2.
