I am trying to ues IndexFeatureFile to reindex a vcf
gatk-launch IndexFeatureFile -F redo.vcf
however,that command exits with this message:

A USER ERROR has occurred: The IndexFeatureFile tool is temporarily disabled.

org.broadinstitute.hellbender.exceptions.UserException: The IndexFeatureFile tool is temporarily disabled.
    at org.broadinstitute.hellbender.cmdline.CommandLineProgram.runTool(

    at org.broadinstitute.hellbender.cmdline.CommandLineProgram.instanceMain(
    at org.broadinstitute.hellbender.Main.runCommandLineProgram(
    at org.broadinstitute.hellbender.Main.mainEntry(

It is a bug?

    As noted in the error message, the IndexFeatureFile tool was temporarily disabled. This was indeed done because of a serious bug in htsjdk. It's being fixed and we should be able to reactivate this tool in a release coming very soon (possibly end of the week).

    thanks,I have used bgzip and tabix solve my problem.
