About this method

Send a conversion event related to an Algolia request.

Use this event to track when users convert after a previous Algolia request. For example, a user clicks on an item in the search results to view the product detail page. Then, the user adds the item to their shopping cart.

If you use Algolia to build your category pages, you’ll also use the convertedObjectIDsAfterSearch event.

Sending this event is useful for:

Related methods:

  • convertedObjectIDs: track conversion events not related to Algolia requests.
  • sendEvents: if you don’t want to send real-time events.

eventName

Required

Name of the specific event.

Format: 1-64 ASCII characters, except control characters.

To maximize the impact of your events, use consistent event names and consistent formatting—for example, “Product Added To Cart” (always in title case).

For example, you can adopt Segment’s object-action framework.

Format: same as the index name used by the search engine.

Some API clients use index instead of indexName.

You can include up to 20 objectID.

queryID
type: string
pattern: [a-f0-9]{32}

A queryID is required for events related to search or browse requests.

If you add clickAnalytics: true as a search request parameter, the queryID is included in the API response.
