Integrate Algolia

Edit on GitHub

This document describes how to integrate Algolia into a Spryker shop.

Prerequisites

Before integrating Algolia, ensure the following prerequisites are met:

  • Make sure your project is ACP-enabled. See App Composition Platform installation for details.

  • The Algolia app catalog page lists specific packages that must be installed or upgraded before you can use the Algolia app. To check the list of the necessary packages, in the Back Office, go to Apps-> Algolia. list-of-algolia-modules

Make sure that your installation meets these requirements.

Integrate Algolia

To integrate Algolia, follow these steps.

1. Configure shared configs

Add the following config to config/Shared/config_default.php:

use Generated\Shared\Transfer\InitializeProductExportTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\ProductCreatedTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\ProductDeletedTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\ProductExportedTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\ProductUpdatedTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\SearchEndpointAvailableTransfer;
use Generated\Shared\Transfer\SearchEndpointRemovedTransfer;
use Spryker\Shared\MessageBroker\MessageBrokerConstants;
use Spryker\Shared\Product\ProductConstants;
use Spryker\Shared\SearchHttp\SearchHttpConstants;
use Spryker\Zed\MessageBrokerAws\MessageBrokerAwsConfig;

//...

$config[SearchHttpConstants::TENANT_IDENTIFIER]
    = $config[ProductConstants::TENANT_IDENTIFIER]
    = getenv('SPRYKER_TENANT_IDENTIFIER') ?: '';

$config[MessageBrokerConstants::MESSAGE_TO_CHANNEL_MAP] = [
    //...
    ProductExportedTransfer::class => 'product-events',
    ProductCreatedTransfer::class => 'product-events',
    ProductUpdatedTransfer::class => 'product-events',
    ProductDeletedTransfer::class => 'product-events',
    InitializeProductExportTransfer::class => 'product-commands',
    SearchEndpointAvailableTransfer::class => 'search-commands',
    SearchEndpointRemovedTransfer::class => 'search-commands',
];

$config[MessageBrokerConstants::CHANNEL_TO_RECEIVER_TRANSPORT_MAP] = [
    //...
    'product-commands' => MessageBrokerAwsConfig::HTTP_CHANNEL_TRANSPORT,
    'search-commands' => MessageBrokerAwsConfig::HTTP_CHANNEL_TRANSPORT,
];

$config[MessageBrokerConstants::CHANNEL_TO_SENDER_TRANSPORT_MAP] = [
    //...
    'product-events' => MessageBrokerAwsConfig::HTTP_CHANNEL_TRANSPORT,
];

2. Configure modules and dependencies

Configure modules and add the necessary dependencies according to these guidelines.

<?php

namespace Pyz\Client\SearchHttp;

use Spryker\Client\Catalog\Plugin\ConfigTransferBuilder\CategoryFacetConfigTransferBuilderPlugin;
use Spryker\Client\Catalog\Plugin\SearchHttp\CatalogSearchHttpConfigBuilderPlugin;
use Spryker\Client\CatalogPriceProductConnector\Plugin\ConfigTransferBuilder\PriceFacetConfigTransferBuilderPlugin;

use Spryker\Client\SearchHttp\SearchHttpDependencyProvider as SprykerSearchHttpDependencyProvider;

class SearchHttpDependencyProvider extends SprykerSearchHttpDependencyProvider
{
    /**
     * @return array<\Spryker\Client\Catalog\Dependency\Plugin\FacetConfigTransferBuilderPluginInterface>
     */
    protected function getFacetConfigTransferBuilders(): array
    {
        return [

    protected function getSearchConfigBuilderPlugins(): array
    {
        return [
            new CatalogSearchHttpConfigBuilderPlugin(),
        ];

            new MerchantProductMerchantNameSearchConfigExpanderPlugin(), # for marketplace only
        ];
    }
}

Configure MessageBroker dependencies in Zed

Add the following code to src/Pyz/Zed/MessageBroker/MessageBrokerDependencyProvider.php:

          new SearchEndpointMessageHandlerPlugin(),
          new MerchantMessageHandlerPlugin(), # for marketplace only
      ];
  }

  //...
}

Adjust MessageBroker configuration in Zed

Add the following code to src/Pyz/Zed/MessageBroker/MessageBrokerConfig.php:

//...

class MessageBrokerConfig extends SprykerMessageBrokerConfig
{
    //...

    /**
     * @return array<string>

            'search-commands',
        ];
    }

    //...
}

Adjust Product configuration in Zed

Because of Algolia product search index syncronization is triggerd by internal Spryker events, it’s required to provide a list of events for enabling product data syncronization. Add the following code to src/Pyz/Zed/Product/ProductConfig.php:

//...

use Spryker\Shared\ProductBundleStorage\ProductBundleStorageConfig;
use Spryker\Zed\PriceProduct\Dependency\PriceProductEvents;
use Spryker\Zed\Product\Dependency\ProductEvents;
use Spryker\Zed\Product\ProductConfig as SprykerProductConfig;
use Spryker\Zed\ProductCategory\Dependency\ProductCategoryEvents;
use Spryker\Zed\ProductImage\Dependency\ProductImageEvents;
use Spryker\Zed\ProductReview\Dependency\ProductReviewEvents;

//...

class ProductConfig extends SprykerProductConfig
{
    //...

    /**
     * @api
     *
     * @return array<string>
     */
    public function getProductAbstractUpdateMessageBrokerPublisherSubscribedEvents(): array
    {
        return [
            ProductEvents::PRODUCT_ABSTRACT_PUBLISH,
            ProductCategoryEvents::PRODUCT_CATEGORY_PUBLISH,
            ProductImageEvents::PRODUCT_IMAGE_PRODUCT_ABSTRACT_PUBLISH,
            PriceProductEvents::PRICE_ABSTRACT_PUBLISH,
            ProductReviewEvents::PRODUCT_ABSTRACT_REVIEW_PUBLISH,
        ];
    }

    /**
     * @api
     *
     * @return array<string>
     */
    public function getProductUpdateMessageBrokerPublisherSubscribedEvents(): array
    {
        return [
            ProductEvents::ENTITY_SPY_PRODUCT_UPDATE,
            ProductEvents::PRODUCT_CONCRETE_UPDATE,
            ProductEvents::PRODUCT_CONCRETE_PUBLISH,
            ProductBundleStorageConfig::PRODUCT_BUNDLE_PUBLISH,
            ProductImageEvents::PRODUCT_IMAGE_PRODUCT_CONCRETE_PUBLISH,
        ];
    }

    //...
}
Warning

If your project has project-speciific functionality where abstract or concrete products are created, updated or deleted, add the necessary events to the list for when you need to send updated data to Algolia.

Examples of such functionality include:

  • A custom functionality in the Back Office
  • Custom data import
  • Integration with some middleware when product or product-related data is updated in Spryker

Keep int mind, that to trigger custom events in Spryker you need to use EventFacade::trigger('event-name', $payload) or EventFacade::triggerBulk('event-name', $payloads) methods.

Receive ACP messages

Now, you can start receiving ACP messages in SCOS. See Receive messages for details on how to do that.

Additional information on Algolia integration

When integrating Algolia, you should keep in mind some peculiarities of the SearchHTTP plugins setup and differences of the default facets.

SearchHTTP plugins setup

Spryker’s SearchHTTP module transfers Glue search requests to external search providers, one of which is Algolia. The SearchHTTP query is built using the QueryExpanderPlugin classes. Their order is defined in the CatalogDependencyProvider::createCatalogSearchQueryExpanderPluginVariants() method. The order of execution of those plugins might be customized on the project level. By default, all module-specific query builder plugins will be executed before parsing GET query parameters, so any GET query parameters may overwrite search query parameters set before.

Default facets differences

There is a difference in how default facets behave on Algolia and on the default Spryker installation using Elasticsearch. Some default Spryker facets like brand only accept one value as a filter, so it is impossible to specify multiple brands to filter on in one search request. This is not the case with Algolia, as multiple brands can be specified in the same search requests. This also applies to other configured facets.

Next steps

Configure the Algolia app for your store.
