Adding and Managing Source Mappings

When you have the required privileges, you can add and edit mappings (see Required Privileges).

Mappings define what Coveo index fields contain for each source item. The information typically comes from a metadata, but can also be a specific value for all source items.

A Coveo Cloud source needs mapping files to correctly copy the repository metadata values to appropriate index fields (see Understanding Fields).

  • When metadata names1 and destination field names are different

  • When the same value must be set for all source items

Note 1: Metadata names are case sensitive.
