How to add manually some records to an index via the Algolia Interface


I am new to Algolia. Thanks for your patience.

I would like to add a simple record to my current index. It seems it’s possible to do so via the interface via “Manage current index” and then “Add manually”.

It opens a dark window with line numbers and…then I am lost.
What should I do there in order to add a new record?
What is the syntax I need to respect ( json ) and how to give insert order in this window.

Thanks a lot for your help.


Hey there, I was just about to send a response to you in support. The format you use is JSON in this window.

Here’s a quick gif that shows you how to do it!
