Have a question?

A Search Request is a group of one or more search operations sent in a single exchange.

Search Operations are triggered when a search is performed. In autocomplete and search-as-you-type implementations, a new search request is performed on every keystroke. In case your search engine is querying N indices at each keystroke (a product index, a brand index, a categories index, etc.) then one keystroke will count as one Search Request.

For more details, please refer to our detailed documentation.

Simply put, a record is an item or object that contains data that someone would search for. The total number of records is equal to the sum of records that you have in all of your indices. Note that each pre-sort of your records creates a copy of the relevant pre-sorted records and as a result, increases your total record count.

Each plan allows you to store a certain number of records at any given time. You can update, delete, or add as many records as you want as long as the total number of the indexed records does not exceed the inclusion of the plan. If you go over the inclusion, you’ll be charged an over-quota based on the maximum number of records you’ve reached. Depending on your plan, there may be an opportunity to pre-purchase additional records at the beginning of your contract period at a discounted price.

Note: To offer some flexibility, Algolia ignores the 3 days with the most records in each month before calculating the total number of records.

A Unit is used to represent a certain number of search requests (query only, free indexing ops) and records.

A unit allows us to provide one metric per price level, instead of two separate ones in an effort to simplify our pricing for the prospect or customer.

When using Pay-as-you go pricing (no contract or minimum commitment), each unit contains 1,000 searches per month, and a maximum of 1,000 records. This way, one unit bought each month for twelve months will give 12,000 searches in one year, with a maximum of 1,000 records at any point in the year.

When using Annual Commitment pricing (minimum one year commitment and 1,200 units), each unit contains 1,000 searches x 12 = 12,000 searches during the year, and 100 x 12 = 1,200 maximum of records at any point in the year.

This is why we say there are roughly 10% records to annual search volume - a bit higher with Annual Commitment than with Pay-As-You Go (1,200 per unit / year v. 1,000 per unit / year).

If your use case includes higher record volumes than what is provided by this model, please contact sales.

If fewer units are used than included in what I purchased, they do not roll over to the following service period.

You do. You retain ownership of all the data you send to your user account.

If you exceed your committed usage, there are overages that will be charged.
