Accessing the Coveo Interface Editor

You can easily configure a Coveo JavaScript Search Framework search interface using the second generation JavaScript Search Interface Editor (see JavaScript Search Interface Editor).

The second generation JavaScript search Interface Editor is available in the Coveo Cloud administration console. You can easily customize Coveo Cloud V2 hosted search pages using the built-in Coveo JavaScript Search Framework Interface editor.

Members with the privilege to view search pages (i.e., the View access level on the Search pages domain) can access hosted search interfaces when clicking Open (see Privilege Management and Search Pages Domain).

  1. If not already done, log in to your Coveo Cloud organization as a member of a group with the required privileges.

  2. In the main menu, under Search, select Search Pages (see Adding and Managing Search Pages).

  3. In the list of search pages, to access the Interface Editor for a specific search page:

    • Double-click the search page that you want to customize (do not click on the URL link, as this would rather open the actual search page in read-only mode).


    • Click the desired search page, and then in the Action bar, click Edit Interface.
  4. In the Interface Editor within which your search page appears:

    1. Use the Interface Editor features to customize your search interface (see JavaScript Search Interface Editor).

    2. Click Save to make changes immediately effective.
