Add or Edit a YouTube Source

Administrators and content managers can add YouTube brand or user channel content to a Coveo Cloud organization. The source can be shared or private (see Content Security).

The YouTube source does not completely support refreshes. A source rescan or rebuild is required to take account of the following content changes:

  • Deleted videos

  • Changes on videos

  • Statistics on videos (e.g., view counts, likes, …) updates

  • Playlist and playlist item updates

You should thus configure the source schedule to start a rescan at least once a day (see Edit a Source Schedule). However, a YouTube source starts a refresh every day to retrieve YouTube item changes (addition, modification, or deletion).
