Currently it is not possible to invoke a re-indexing of facial recognition data at either the global or folder/collection level. For my purposes re-indexing at the folder and collection level would be sufficient.

Reason: when a face is removed from a previously indexed image it is not possible to automatically recognize faces other than reviewing many images and manually applying a face region.

Lightroom 7.3 is now available

This version of Lightroom contains a much improved face engine and the ability to re-index photos for faces. See for details.
