Retrieving autocomplete and search suggestions

Edit on GitHub

In addition to catalog search, Glue API allows you to retrieve autocomplete suggestions for products, categories, and CMS pages. The feature allows developers to predict search strings and provide customers with available options.

In your development, this resource can help you to enhance the customer experience by providing the relevant information for search, product filters, shopping cart, checkout, order history, wishlist, and many more.

Installation

For detailed information on the modules that provide the API functionality and related installation instructions, see Glue API: Catalog feature integration.
