Add or Edit a Lithium Source

Administrators and content managers can add the content of a Lithium community to a Coveo Cloud organization. The source can be shared or private (see Content Security). By default, a Lithium source is refreshed every hour and rescanned every day to retrieve Lithium item changes (addition, modification, or deletion) (see Edit a Source Schedule).

The Lithium source cannot include Lithium permissions because the Lithium API does not allow to retrieve user permissions for each item. This means that any user having access to search results from a Lithium source can find any indexed Lithium item, regardless of whether they are allowed to access these items in Lithium (see Private Content and Limiting Source Content Permissions To Specific Users).
