How To Force Search API To Reindex a Node / an Entity

I’m working on Sear API. My entity has many items and data change by action of the user. I don’t want to reindex all items of data. So I want to reindex an entity after user does the action. I found the topic but just for Drupal 7. So with search API for Drupal 8, how to I can implement force search API to reindex an entity? The way or snippet code I can use? Please help!

e.g. I have search index with some basic field like this:

enter image description here

I want to update the number of comment value after use add a new comment. Default search api doesn’t not support that. And I don’t want to wait for a cron to update value. Imagine one field very important not like the number of comment. That field needs to update immediately.
