Magento features compatibility
The Algolia extension for Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce is compatible with these external modules.
Magento Inventory (MSI)
The code for the
Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory module is a community-developed module available on GitHub. Though Algolia is a contributor to this repository, there is no product roadmap for this module and it’s not aligned with the Algolia/Magento integration product releases.
The Algolia extension supports the Magento Inventory module, also known as Multi-Source Inventory (MSI).
See Inventory Management in the Magento developer documentation for more information.
The MSI features include:
- Different configurations for merchants whose inventory originates from single or multiple sources
- Stock tracking through assigned sources
- Concurrent checkout protection
- Shipment matching algorithms
As a consequence, you can create multiple inventory sources and stocks to manage the availability of products in your stores.
MSI changed the way a product is determined to be in stock or not.
To support the new behavior and to keep backwards compatibility with older versions of the Magento 2 integration,
Algolia provides an optional module,
You can download this module separately with Composer and use it in addition to the Algolia extension.
You can use the
Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory module with version 1.12 or later of the Algolia extension.
To decide which version of the
Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory you need to install,
check the compatibility on GitHub.
You can use
- You’re using Magento version 2.3 or later
- You’re using multiple sources/stocks to manage your inventory
If you don’t use MSI, adding the
Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory module won’t break your indexing process,
but it may slow it down. You should only install the module if you’re using MSI.
Installing the Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory module
Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory module with Composer:
1 2 3 4 composer require algolia/algoliasearch-inventory-magento-2 php bin/magento module:enable Algolia_AlgoliaSearchInventory php bin/magento setup:upgrade php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy # in case you're on production mode
Now, your multiple sources and stocks are handled as you expect and you can continue to use the Algolia extension.
