Custom modifications

You can create/delete your own indexes and put custom mappings on it

$index = config('scout.elasticsearch.index');

// Check if index exists
if($model->searchableUsing()->exists($index))
{
    // Delete index if exists
    $model->searchableUsing()->deleteIndex($index);
}

// Create new index
$model->searchableUsing()->createIndex($index);

// Put custom mapping
$mappings = $model->mapping();
$model->searchableUsing()->putMapping($index, $model->getTable(), $mappings);

For using the custom mapping just add a mapping function to your model

public function mapping()
{
    $mapping = [
        'title' => [
            'type' => 'keyword'
        ]
    ];

    return $mapping;
}

Boost

If you wanna boost some fields, just add a boosts variable to your model

protected $boosts = [
    'title' => 2
];
