Configuring searchable attributes

When configuring your index, you need to define which attributes should be searchable.

To configure searchable attributes, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Index page in the Algolia dashboard
  2. Select your index
  3. Go to the Index settings
  4. Select Searchable attributes

Configure searchable attributes for your index

You should declare most of your searchable attributes as unordered. This ensures that the position of a word within the attribute doesn’t affect the ranking.

To test the change, go to the Browse tab on the Index page on the Algolia dashboard and enter a search query or apply a filter.
