Processors in Search for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

Processors allow you to augment your search indexes by performing additional operations before or after the index operation. This can make your search more flexible.

In this tutorial, we'll:

  • Identify what a processor is, and when it can be employed in the search pipeline.
  • List useful processors provided by Search API.
  • Describe how to apply a processor to an index, and why reindexing is necessary.
