Integrations / Platforms / Magento 1 / SKU Reindexing Form

SKU Reindexing Form

This feature can be accessed directly from the Magento 1 back-office by navigating to System > Algolia Search > Reindex SKU(s) through the main menu.

Purpose

At some point, you may need to send products to Algolia immediately, without waiting for the indexing queue. The SKU reindexing form lets you instantly send specified products to Algolia. It can also help you debug indexing issues because it provides an explanation when a product fails.

Keep in mind that if a product can’t be indexed with this tool, it can’t be indexed through standard scripts either.

How to use it

The form only requires the unique Magento identifier for all products: the SKU.

To reindex products, just enter their SKUs separated by either commas or carriage returns and click Reindex SKU(s) on the top-right corner of the page.

You can reindex up to 10 products at once.

Understanding results

If all provided products were indexed correctly, you’ll be notified that the products have been indexed in all your Magento store’s indices.

If certain products are not related to some of your stores, then they won’t be indexed to those stores and you will be notified.

There are a number of reasons why you might be unable to index a product:

  • Product is disabled.
  • Product is deleted.
  • Product is out of stock.
  • Product is not visible.

If a product doesn’t meet all of these requirements, you’ll get a message explaining why it wasn’t reindexed.

Note about product visibility: If you enter the SKU of a child product (from a configurable, grouped, or bundled product) which is not visible individually, the parent product will automatically be fetched and indexed if possible.
