Create Search API Indexes for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

While Solr compartmentalizes settings into cores, Search API organizes things into indexes. Each Search API index can have a unique set of settings and crawl a specified list of content types. Search API indexes can be created in the Search API admin interface.

In this tutorial, we'll:

  • Identify a Search API index
  • Describe how an index is related to a Solr core

By the end of this tutorial you should be able to create a new Search API Index connected to a Solr backend.
