i am looking for a way to change the mode of Magento 2 Indexer.

The way it was done in Mage 1 :

$pCollection = Mage::getSingleton('index/indexer')->getProcessesCollection();

        foreach ($pCollection as $process) {

Is this even possible in Magento 2 ?


Now in Magento 2 we have two modes: "on save" and "on schedule".

See example code that switch fulltext indexer to on save mode.

    /** @var \Magento\Framework\Indexer\IndexerRegistry $indexerRegistry */
    $indexerRegistry = \Magento\TestFramework\Helper\Bootstrap::getObjectManager()

  • i want to change the mode of all indexers to "on schedule" can u give me that part ? – Me7z Oct 13 '16 at 7:38

You can set the mode via command line

php bin/magento indexer:set-mode {realtime|schedule} [indexer-name]

“realtime” is equal to “Update on Save” and “schedule” is equal to “Update by Schedule”.

You can use this code based on : Magento\Indexer\Controller\Adminhtml\Indexer\MassChangelog

foreach ($indexerIds as $indexerId) {
    /** @var \Magento\Framework\Indexer\IndexerInterface $model */
    $model = $this->_objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Indexer\IndexerRegistry')->get($indexerId);

IndexerIds can be retrieve on the code or by Magento command :

design_config_grid                       Design Config Grid
customer_grid                            Customer Grid
catalog_category_product                 Category Products
catalog_product_category                 Product Categories

catalog_product_attribute                Product EAV
catalogrule_rule                         Catalog Rule Product
catalogrule_product                      Catalog Product Rule
cataloginventory_stock                   Stock
catalogsearch_fulltext                   Catalog Search
