We're using a Lookup column to link to master data.  When the master data is updated, the changes are applied to the content via the Lookup.  While this works well for the browsing and filtering within the list view, the update to Lookup pull-through data does not appear to trigger a crawl.  We use these properties for search purposes (refiners) and need them to be updated.  Is there a way to trigger the crawl when an item is updated in the Lookup list for the libraries that use it?

Great scenario! Unfortunately, this functionality/question need to go to the SharePoint team for the most up-to-date information. You can post this question to them here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/ct-p/SharePoint.
