Note 1: By default, shared link permissions are ignored, meaning that an item only shared with a link is only visible by its owner in your Coveo search interface. Contact Coveo Support for assistance on how to take shared link permissions into account.
Add or Edit a Box Business Source
If not already in the Add/Edit a Box Business Source panel, go to the panel:
To add a source, in the main menu, under Content, select Sources > Add source button > Box > Box Business.
To edit a source, in the main menu, under Content, select Sources, and then double-click the desired source row.
In the Add/Edit a Box Business Source panel, in the Configuration tab, enter appropriate parameter values:
A descriptive name for your source under 255 characters (not already in use for another source in this organization).
You cannot change the source name once it is created.
Enter the Box application credentials in JSON format (see Use an Application Config File).
Click Choose File to select a JSON format credentials file to upload (see Use an Application Config File).
Select who should be able to access the Box content through a Coveo search (see Source Permission Types). Available options are:
Shared - Everyone
Secured - Only users authenticated in the search interface will see the source items for which they have read permission.
In the Users to Include section:
- Select All if you want to make all your managed Box accounts searchable.
In the User emails box that appears, enter the user email addresses corresponding to the Box accounts you want to make searchable.
When you want users to be included as separate items, add the
IndexUsershidden parameter and set it to
truein the source JSON configuration (see Source JSON Modification Examples). The default value is
- In the Access tab, determine whether each group and API key can view or edit the source configuration:
- In the Access Level column, select View or Edit for each available group.
- On the left-hand side of the tab, if available, click Groups or API Keys to switch lists.
If you remove the Edit access level from all the groups of which you are a member, you will not be able to edit the source again after saving. Only administrators and members of other groups that have Edit access on this resource will be able to do so. To keep your ability to edit this resource, you must grant the Edit access level to at least one of your groups.
Optionally, consider editing or adding mappings between Box item metadata and fields in your Coveo Cloud organization (see Manage Source Mappings).
You can only manage mapping rules once you build the source (see Refresh, Rescan or Rebuild Sources).
Complete your source addition or edition:
Click Add Source/Save when you want to save your source configuration changes without starting a build/rebuild, such as when you know you want to do other changes soon.
In the Sources page, you need to click Start initial build or Start initial rebuild in the source Status column to respectively add the source content and make your changes effective.
Click Add and Build Source/Save and Rebuild Source when you are done editing the source and want to make changes effective.
Back in the Coveo Cloud administration console Sources page, you can review the progress of your Box source addition or modification (see Manage Sources).
Optionally, review the source refresh schedule.
By default, your Box Business source is refreshed every 15 minutes to quickly make your Box Business content changes searchable (additions, modifications, or deletions). When your Box account content does not change frequently, consider increasing the refresh time interval (such as every hour or every day) to optimize resource consumption (see Edit a Source Schedule).
Review your source update schedule (see Edit a Source Schedule).
