Algolia Business Manager module

You can find the Algolia Business Manager under Merchant Tools → Algolia → Algolia. The log section of this module contains information about the results of the last job run for each site where the job was run. After the first installation of the cartridge and before the first run of the job, the section with the log data may be absent. It is created after the job starts.

Data Storage

It uses XML files to help synchronizing between your SFCC site and Algolia. You can find these files under Administration → Site Development → Development Setup → Import/Export, in the src/Algolia folder.

The folder is automatically created when you first run an Algolia job.

Failover and recovery process

To solve inconsistency issues with your index, you can rebuild your indices. This will make the data in your indices up-to-date.
