Import a JSON file to Orama Cloud
With Orama Cloud, you can upload a JSON file as a data source. Once you upload it to Orama Cloud, it will be distributed in our Global Search Network, making it available in 300 global locations worldwide.
You can follow along with this guide by downloading the following example JSON file:
As always, you can create a new Orama Cloud index by going to https://cloud.oramasearch.com/indexes/new (opens in a new tab).
Once you're there, you will be presented with the following screen:
Of course, you can choose any name and description you want for your index. In this example, we will use the name
My JSON File Index.
After selecting "JSON File" as a data source, we can click on the "Create Index" button, and we'll see the following screen:
At this point, we can upload our JSON file by dragging and dropping it into the dedicated area, or by clicking on the "Choose a file" area and selecting the file from our computer.
As soon as we do that, we will see the preview of the JSON file, which will help us write the Orama Schema for our index.
We can also use the "autodetect" feature, which will automatically generate a schema for us. This is an experimental feature, so please always double check the generated schema.
Once we are happy with the schema, we can click on the "Save and deploy" button, and our index will be deployed.
Now that you have your index deployed, you can start using it in your app.
