About Coveo for Salesforce usage analytics

By installing Coveo for Salesforce, you have access to your own Coveo organization, where you can access the usage analytics coming from your Coveo components.

About usage analytics events

A usage analytics event is any user interaction with a search interface, including but not limited to search, click, and custom events (see Usage analytics events).

The act of recording a search event relies on two elements: the Cause and the Dimension.

  • A Cause has a name and a type. It’s itself a dimension.

    An example of a cause would be interfaceLoad or facetSelect.

  • A Dimension is a grouping of metadata key-value pairs principally exploited within the Coveo UA reports.

    For examples of dimensions, see Usage analytics dimensions.

Sending custom events
