Automatically switching to an alternate glyph

I'm using a font with a capital "R" that I want to replace everywhere with its "Stylistic alternate (salt)", which is much more suitable than the default glyph. The font doesn't seem to contain any stylistic sets that I can enable, nor does this alternate glyph seem to be enabled by changing any of the OpenType options, such as swashes or contextual alternatives. I can't seem to generate a character style that will do this. I also haven't had any success using find and replace to make this change. The only way I currently have of changing this is using the hover-over contextual menu, and this isn't practical for every instance of this glyph in the text.

 

My question is, is there a way within InDesign for this change to occur automatically? I've searched other questions here and can't find an answer for this particular case.
