Hi S&P team, this is a request from Canadian Tire, for remote control 'index status' messages. Customer uses Remote Control urls to initiate indexes, but there are no remote control commands that provide crawl status data, such as # of pages indexed, total index time so far, index complete, etc. These index status messages would help the customer determine when they could initiate a new index. Current 'priority' status message is not sufficient. Can we add additional index status calls to the remote control commands?
Apologies for the delay in responding on this thread. I've checked with the relevant teams and currently there is no API with the mentioned functionality. It would need to be built or would be a feature request.
The reports you mention are now workable for this, the customer needs the current indexing status via an API call so that they know when they can start their next index. Example: they start an index with 50K products, if they can get a status message via an API call that states 49K products have been indexed so far, they know the current index will finish shortly and they can start another one. Right now they get a 'pending' response that doesn't contain enough details to know when the current index will finish.
