Trying to understand pinecone and embeddings here

Ok maybe im just used to SQL, but does pinecone store the text related to the embedding? how does it work? I’m about to upload my embeddings but want to make sure I have it correct and understand what is going on first.

Building my own knowledge base.

Hi @thomas.ribeiroruss

by default Pinecone only stores the id and the vector. But, you can add your text as a metadata together with some other useful info like page, line, category etc.

When storing text into metadata be mindful of the metadata size limitation, but other than that, store away! :slight_smile:

Hope this helps
