Slack source channels

Show List of Indexed Channels in Slack Sources

The Slack source interface now includes a “Channels to Index” section that lists all the Slack channels to which your Slack bot is added. Since your Slack source indexes the messages for the channels that contain your Slack bot, you can quickly see which channels are indexed from your Slack workspace.

API Key Privileges Restrictions

To align with the latest industry standards regarding API key privileges, the following restrictions have been added to API keys:

  • API keys that contain the Execute queries > Allowed and/or Impersonate > Allowed privileges of the Search service can now only be combined with the Impersonate > Allowed and/or Analytics data > Push privileges of the Analytics service.

  • API keys that contain administrative privileges, such as the Query pipelines > View all privilege of the Search service, or the Sources > Edit all privilege of the Content service, can no longer have the Execute queries > Allowed, Search > Impersonate > Allowed, or Analytics > Impersonate > Allowed privileges associated together.

This change also applies to API keys created before this update as soon as their privileges will be edited.

To execute tasks in your server-side application that require both administrative and search privileges, you now have to create two separate API keys, which combined, contain all the required privileges. Client-side API keys should always have only two privileges: 

  • Execute queries > Allowed

  • Analytics data > Push

Index Jira Software Cloud and Confluence Cloud Permission Systems

Thanks to Coveo’s new app on the Atlassian Marketplace, it’s now possible to create Jira Software Cloud and Confluence Cloud sources that replicate your content’s permission system.

This free app connects your Coveo organization with your Atlassian instance and thus enables user synchronization between both platforms. You can then create a source with the Determined by source permissions content security option. As a result, through a Coveo-powered search interface, authenticated users only see the items that they’re allowed to access within your Jira Software Cloud or Confluence Cloud instance.

Right now, using the plugin to index permissions of Jira Software Cloud and Confluence Cloud sources is possible in US and non-HIPAA organizations only. In other organizations, the Determined by source permissions option can’t be used yet.

New Search Interface Builder

Coveo now offers an intuitive builder allowing you to create Atomic search interfaces.

It is meant to offer an easy, no-code way to build a simple search interface. The process takes just a few minutes and the resulting search interface is immediately operational since it’s hosted by Coveo. It’s ideal for test and demo purposes.

This new builder is an alternative to the Interface Editor, which allows you to create JavaScript Search Framework search interfaces. The interfaces built with the Interface Editor, which are now referred to as classic search interfaces, aren’t impacted and will continue to appear in the list of hosted search pages.

API Key Security Enhancement

In an effort to add a layer of security to API keys, we implemented the possibility to limit the scope of a key to a certain search hub.

Therefore, when granting an API key some specific privileges, you may see an invitation to select a search hub appear at the bottom of the resource list. We highly recommend that you select one as an additional layer of security for your API key.

Coveo Is NOT Vulnerable to the Apache Log4j RCE

Upon being made aware of the vulnerability, we used a tool for software composition analysis that allowed us to pinpoint the vulnerable library in Coveo applications. Although some Coveo components were using the vulnerable library, we confirmed that the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) version used mitigated the Log4j attack surface by disabling a vulnerable configuration. We were also able to confirm that no customer data has been affected in connection with this vulnerability.

In order to fully remediate the vulnerable component, our teams have taken the necessary steps to update the Log4j library.
