How this extension works

Use this extension to index your Cloud Firestore data to Algolia and keep it synced. The extension is applied and configured on a Firestore collection.

This extension listens for changes on the specified collection. If you add a document, the extension indexes it as a record in Algolia. The extension only indexes the fields defined in the extension configuration and uses the document Id as the Algolia object Id.

Anytime you update a document, the extension propagates the update to the corresponding Algolia record. If you delete a document, the extension removes the corresponding Algolia record.


Upon installation or when the extension’s configuration is changed, the documents in the specified collection will be synced to Algolia.
