Creating an upvote add event

There are many types of events you can send using the Sitecore Search Events API. You might want to track instances of visitors upvoting entities. You can do this using an upvote add event. If upvoting content counts as a conversion for your business, you can mark this event as a conversion by setting the action_sub_type key to conversion.


In addition to the default attributes that are required for all events, the entities attribute is required for upvote add events. The entities array must contain an object representing the entity the user has upvoted, with at least the id and entity_type attributes included.

The following is an example of an upvote add event:


For the event object data model, see the Events API reference.

  "name": "upvote",
  "action": "add",
  "action_sub_type": "conversion",
  "uuid": "<uuid>",
  "client_time_ms": 1234,
  "value": {
    "context":  <context object>,
    "entities": [
        "id": "123",
        "entity_type": "content",
        "entity_subtype": "article",
        "attributes": {
           "author": "ABC"
