How to call the controller method from model?


How to programmatically reindexing using API?

Here is my code.Below code gives me error like below.

{ "messages": { "error": [ { "code": 500, "message": "Fatal Error: 'Class Inchoo\Hello\Model\Hello contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (Magento\Framework\App\ActionInterface::execute)' in 'C:\new\xampp\htdocs\ChoiceWholesale\app\code\Inchoo\Hello\Model\Hello.php' on line 5", "trace": "Trace is not available." } ] } }

namespace Inchoo\Hello\Model;
use Inchoo\Hello\Api\HelloInterface;

class Hello extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action implements HelloInterface

    protected $indexFactory;
    protected $indexCollection;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Indexer\Model\IndexerFactory $indexFactory,
        \Magento\Indexer\Model\Indexer\CollectionFactory $indexCollection
        $this->indexFactory = $indexFactory;
        $this->indexCollection = $indexCollection;
        return parent::__construct($context);

    public function name() {

        $indexerCollection = $this->indexCollection->create();
        $indexids = $indexerCollection->getAllIds();

        foreach ($indexids as $indexid)
          $indexidarray = $this->indexFactory->create()->load($indexid);

          //If you want reindex all use this code.

          //If you want to reindex one by one, use this code

           echo "Reindexing Id :: " .$indexid ."<br>"; 

        echo "Reindexing Completed";

Using API indexing is not a good Idea.

As Indexing run on the command line and it takes much usage on memory & time, So it, not a good idea.

If you want then change the indexing status of each indexing to pending state and Magento cron automatically do indexing as it was in pending. That is the best Solution.

Create di.xml at app/code/Sark/CustomApi/etc/ and where you will define a model class CustomRepository at app/code/Sark/CustomApi/Model/ which overrides Sark\CustomApi\Api\CustomRepositoryInterface.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="Sark\CustomApi\Api\CustomRepositoryInterface" type="Sark\CustomApi\Model\CustomRepository"/>

And CustomRepository.php code is


namespace Sark\CustomApi\Model;

class CustomRepository implements Sark\CustomApi\Api\CustomRepositoryInterface
     * @var \Magento\Framework\Indexer\IndexerRegistry
    private $indexerRegistry;
     * @var \Magento\Indexer\Model\ResourceModel\Indexer\State\CollectionFactory
    private $stateCollectionFactory;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\Indexer\IndexerRegistry $indexerRegistry,
        \Magento\Indexer\Model\ResourceModel\Indexer\State\CollectionFactory $stateCollectionFactory
    ) {
        $this->indexerRegistry = $indexerRegistry;
        $this->stateCollectionFactory = $stateCollectionFactory;

    public function create()
        $indexerStates = $this->stateCollectionFactory->create();
        foreach ($indexerStates->getItems() as $indexerState) {
            $indexer = $this->indexerRegistry->get($indexerState->getIndexerId());
            if ($indexer->getId() && !$indexer->isWorking()) {
  • Con you please describe the $indexer->setScheduled(true); line? Why it is used?

  • You need to check where you put this code and remove it and use at a time one code only.
