Isn’t that nice, if you can sync (index) your DocumentDB data to Azure Search in auto schedule? Yap, so that’s what we will do today. At the end, your DocumentDB data will automatically be indexed to Azure Search, and be able to search from Azure Search like you are searching DocumentDB data.

Original and great walk through tutorial is here at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/documentdb-search-indexer/. This is my version of walking through this tutorial.
Previously I have cover a bit about Azure Search and DocumentDB so if you are not too familiar with what they are and capable of, please refer to, Mastering Azure DocumentDB Part 1 and Mastering Azure Search.
To auto index your DocumentDB to Search, you need to have two things. 1 is data source and 2 is indexer.
