Get all index content without any record limit. Can be used for backups.

The browse method is an alternative to the Search index method. The search method cannot return more than 1,000 results. If you need to retrieve all the content of your index (for backup, SEO purposes or for running a script on it), you should use this method instead.

Results are ranked by attributes and custom ranking.

But for performance reasons, there is no ranking based on:

  • distinct
  • typo-tolerance
  • number of matched words
  • proximity
  • geo distance
