Add or Edit a SharePoint Online Legacy Source

Members of the Administrators and Content Managers built-in groups can include SharePoint Online content and make it searchable. This source can be shared, private, or secured (see Content Security). By default, a SharePoint Online source starts a refresh every hour to retrieve SharePoint Online item changes (addition, modification, or deletion). A source rescan or rebuild is necessary to capture deleted user profiles.

  • The SharePoint Online legacy source requires an identity provider URL (when using a federated authentication) and a SharePoint trust identifier to make secured content searchable (see Authentication Section). To authenticate with OAuth 2.0, use the SharePoint Online source (see Add/Edit SharePoint Online Source).

  • Coveo Cloud organizations that were created after February 28th, 2018 can only create SharePoint Online sources (see Add/Edit SharePoint Online Source).
