How can we improve Azure Search?

Adding hard delete policy to all of Indexer

Can we add hard delete policy to all of indexer as same as soft delete policy?
Some senario in custmer immideiately want to refect source change result. We know we can do it by making push base approach, but it's much easier and simplyer to ensure single data update way.

    I need this feature. I decided against a soft delete policy with my app, and now I'm stuck dealing with this Search limitation. I'd really love to see a feature to let me hard delete records from my search index when documents no longer exist in my Cosmos collections.
