I'd like to implement 'versioning' indexes for each DocDB repository.
In example, DocDB collections are crawler-2016 and crawler-2015, each of which will be indexed to index-2016 and index-2015 in Azure Search.
In this operation, 'Clone Index' button could be helpful greatly as I have to create each index one by one. Actually I screen-captured previous index fields and tick-tick index checkboxes which created from DocDB import datasource.
Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.
