I've tried to do these but nothing worked:

Mage::getSingleton('catalogsearch/fulltext')->cleanIndex(null, $productId);
$storeIds = $product->getStoreIds();
foreach($storeIds as $storeId) {
  $searchIndex = ' ' . $product->getName() . ' ' . $product->getSku() . ' ';
  Mage::getResourceModel('catalogsearch/fulltext_engine')->saveEntityIndex($productId, $storeId, $searchIndex);

This also didn't work:

$processes = Mage::getSingleton('index/indexer')->getProcessesCollection()->addEventsStats();
Mage::getSingleton('catalogsearch/fulltext')->cleanIndex(null, $productId);
$storeIds = $observer->getProduct()->getStoreIds();
foreach($storeIds as $storeId) {
  Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_flat_indexer')->updateProduct($productId, $storeId);

This also didn't work:

$product = $observer->getProduct();
$indexerCodes = [

$event = Mage::getSingleton('index/indexer')->logEvent(

I know that I can find couple of similar questions and answers here and there but I still cannot find fully working solution to reindex only one specific product.


It can be done fairly simple for catalogsearch. Here's an example, just tested it.

require_once 'app/Mage.php';

$store = 1;
$productIds = array(908, 431, 549);

$fullTextModel = Mage::getSingleton('catalogsearch/fulltext');

foreach ($productIds as $productId) {

    if ($fullTextModel->cleanIndex($store, $productId)) {
        echo "cleaned index for product " . $productId . "\n";

        if ($fullTextModel->rebuildIndex($store, $productId)) {
            echo "reindexed index for product " . $productId . "\n";

The same can be done for flat catalog product and category indexes, url rewrites, etc. These actions are triggered on product save. I think you needed an example for catalogsearch. This runs on Magento

  • Unfortunatelly your code still gives me an error: – jimmy Oct 12 '16 at 14:45

  • Little bit tweaked and works as charm. Thank you. – jimmy Oct 18 '16 at 21:20
  • I'm glad to hear that, sorry for my late response. Did you find out why it did not run at your environment in the first place? Since there is no query involved, i'm curious what caused. Are your tweaks worth adding up to the answer? – FROSIT Oct 18 '16 at 21:31
  • Thank you once again for your answer. I have more complicated issue related to custom catalogsearch fulltext table changes and sphinx search. This is totally not releated to my basic question, so let's just skip these details. – jimmy Oct 18 '16 at 21:47
