Classic Commerce transients and Expired transients – you can clear both Classic Commerce transients and all expired transients from your CMS with these two  buttons. Transients are a standardised way to store cached data temporarily in the database.

Orphaned variations – if you have a collection of variations that don’t have a parent you can remove those with one click using the Delete orphaned variations button. You can then order address indexes, which can help improve order search results.

Used-up download permissions – this tool will delete expired download permissions and permissions with 0 remaining downloads.

Order address indexes – this tool will add address indexes to orders that do not have them yet. This improves order search results.

Term counts – this tool will recount product terms – useful when changing your settings in a way which hides products from the catalog. Recounting terms can be useful if you change any settings that hide products from the catalog and have issues from that.

Capabilities – this tool will reset the admin, customer and shop_manager roles to default. Use this if your users cannot access all of the Classic Commerce admin pages. If you find any users that can’t access all of the Classic Commerce admin pages, resetting capabilities can be used in that case.
