Request to index catalog by catalog

Our customer has more than 25 million data and it is not feasible to do a full indexing every month with multiple days of downtime. Indexing by catalog helps us big time.

    There is a feature where the catalogs can be excluded from indexing by configuring the catalog attribute " Exclude from Free Text Search" to true on the catalogs. All catalogs that need to be excluded can be set to true and those that need to be indexed the value can be set to false.

    Currently there is no ask from any other customer to support catalog by catalog indexing directly in Elastic search. But if we do receive multiple such request we will re-visit this ask.
