Is it possible search an item and get it's object ID and access another thing inside that item?

Hi Im new to algolia i dont know if alogia supports this but I want to search an item and get the item’s object ID and access another property from the object ID. for example a user item with a unique name and age. I will search for the name and use that unique name to get the objectID/parent and access their age.

Hi @zoudarren7,

If I understand correctly, you are trying to use Algolia much like a relational database. Algolia is a search engine so it will not do relationships as well as a database. It is best to use your datasource for finding other records based on relationships and only store the information needed for search in your Algolia indices.

In other words, you could use Algolia to search for the desired record and then use the objectID (or another attribute) to link to the appropriate data in your database to find the relationship.

Let me know if I’ve misunderstood your question!
