Coveo for Sitecore 5 is now available!

Opening the Experience Explorer Sets the Static Context to 'Master'

Symptoms

When you open a Sitecore website page in your browser, you notice that Coveo for Sitecore components are pointing to a master item and database.

You have published a Coveo Search Page. When you browse this page, you see that the filter applied is syssource=="coveo_master_index", instead of the web index.

Cause

From Sitecore version 8.0 onwards, if you open an item in the Experience Editor, the static context is changed to the one you are exploring - i.e., master. So if anyone subsequently loads that page, the context will be master.

Resolution

Ensure no administrator has an open Experience Explorer session. A few minutes after all sessions have been closed, the context should be switched back to the web index.
