Give unit tests a way to trigger a SOSL Index

Developer Tools

I would like to write a behavior-driven test to test the following:
  1. User enters a record in a particular way (e.g., using VFPageOne).
  2. User searches for that record in a particular way (e.g., using VFPageTwo).
  3. Assert that the record is returned.
My only problem is that VFPageTwo uses SOSL to query.  Currently, SOSL queries have to be pre-populated in unit tests (see  However, I am trying to test that VFPageOne and VFPageTwo play nicely together - that is, the way I enter data on VFPageOne should create a record that's findable on VFPageTwo.  Since the SOSL query is part of my test, Test.setFixedSearchResults doesn't really help.

I propose a new method, Test.indexSOSL() which triggers a SOSL indexing (or waits for a SOSL indexing) of the test data, so we can accurately test a user flow like above.
