JSON Connector

Easily import any FTP or HTTP-hosted JSON file into Algolia for continuous syncing.



Our no-code JSON connector makes it easy to connect to your HTTP or FTP-hosted JSON files. All you need to do is provide us with the URL and some configuration options, and we’ll handle the rest!

By using our no-code connector, you can streamline the process of connecting to your data, saving you time and effort. You can access the connector by logging into your Algolia dashboard and going to the Connectors tab in the Data Sources section. Once there, you’ll find that setting up any of our no-code connectors is a breeze!

The process is broken down into three simple steps:

  1. Data source configuration: Tell us where your data is located, whether any authentication is needed, and how to identify a unique record. This allows our connector to understand the structure of your data and how to extract it.
  2. Destination configuration: Let us know which index you want to send the data to. Feel free to mix and match if you need multiple production or development environments.
  3. Task configuration: Decide how and when you want to fetch the data. You can choose to retrieve the data on-demand or set up a schedule for regular updates. This gives you complete control over when and how your data is processed.

And that’s it! With these three simple steps, you can set up a seamless connection to your data that requires no coding skills. Our connector takes care of the heavy lifting, ensuring that your index is always in sync with your product catalog, media content, or whatever data you need to build amazing search and discovery experiences.
