Integrations / Salesforce Commerce Cloud B2C

Start indexing your data

The Algolia B2C cartridge comes with five Salesforce B2C Commerce jobs that can build, synchronize, and clear product and category indices, and one for content indices.

The AlgoliaProductIndex_v2, AlgoliaProductDeltaIndex_v2, AlgoliaProductPriceIndex_v2, and AlgoliaProductInventoryIndex_v2 jobs synchronize product data. The AlgoliaCategoryIndex_v2 job synchronizes category data. The AlgoliaContentIndex_v2 job synchronizes content data.

Initial indexing

To start indexing your product data to Algolia for the first time, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Administration > Operations > Jobs.

    Algolia Salesforce B2C Commerce jobs

  2. Select AlgoliaProductIndex_v2 and go to the Job Steps section.
  3. Set the execution scope to the site you want to run the job for.
  4. Run the job.

Repeat the same steps for AlgoliaCategoryIndex_v2.

When both jobs are finished, you can check the new indices created in the Algolia dashboard.

Running these jobs for the first time might take a while depending on how much data you have. The next jobs will run faster by only sending the data that changed.
