Getting Started on Sending Events
On this page
You can send events to Algolia using:
- Algolia’s Open Source UI libraries (InstantSearch)
- Algolia’s API Clients
- Other Integrations listed in the next section
A REST API, called the Insights API, lies beneath these clients and has a single endpoint. For this reason, Algolia sometimes refers to these events as “Insights events”. Once you’ve sent events, you can validate that you are capturing all the necessary information using the Insights Validator and Insights Logs.
This is a three-step process.
- Plan the events to send
- Send the events
- Validate and debug the events
The following guides map the Insights API methods to various events throughout the eCommerce customer journey.
