Programmatic way to configure search with CSOM
There's currently no better way to configure search indexed and managed properties than export/import configuration. It's a huge pain when building search related apps and a black box, we need something better
Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. We are targeting our API efforts on the Graph API side and due to internal prioritize are not planning to allocate resources to new CSOM capabilities.
We are potentially looking into having Microsoft Graph API operations for the search configuration in the future, but we cannot currently share any ETA for this and capability will not be provided through classic CSOM APIs.

Additionally the export/import technique requires a full control permission which make the application impossible to publish on the marketplace
