## Advanced settings
The advanced options provide a couple of settings for webhook indexing performance improvements.
**Ignore unmatching webhooks** – Continuous reindexing of all repositories may cause significant performance issues if unmatching webhooks are not ignored. When set to `Enabled` (default), this setting filters out incoming webhooks without a matching repository. This setting is `Enabled` by default for new and upgrading users.
**Min. repository reindex interval** – The frequency of reindexing is set to a maximum of this value (in minutes). Default value is 5 minutes. Set this value to 0 (zero) to disable this setting.
