About the Administration Console

This is for:

System Administrator

The Coveo Administration Console is a web application allowing its users to manage their Coveo organization.

To access the Administration Console, one must be granted the privilege to see one of its pages, at least. Then, after logging in, they can review certain data or perform certain tasks, depending on the set of privileges they have been granted. For example, they could be allowed to manage the content of your organization or review usage analytics data.

Leading practice

Not all Coveo users in your company or organization need to access the Coveo Administration Console. Most Coveo users in your ecosystem only interact with the Coveo-powered search interfaces you implemented in your intranet, customer support application, customer portal, etc. These end users are only seeking relevant content and don’t need to understand or manage the mechanics providing them their content.

Therefore, you should only grant the privilege to access the Coveo Administration Console to coworkers who actually need to review or edit your Coveo organization data and configuration.

Here’s a breakdown of the Administration Console:

Organization picker

The organization picker indicates which organization you’re managing with the Administration Console, as well as its type. When you have access to more than one organization, you can switch between organizations through this menu.

Typically, Coveo customers have at least one production organization, which powers their search interfaces. They may also have one or more non-production organizations for testing purposes.

Notification center

The notification center allows you to access the Critical Updates (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) and User Notifications Administration Console pages, as well as the latest news regarding the Platform.

It also displays the state of your organization and of the Coveo systems. When a status indicator turns to yellow or red, the Coveo team is automatically notified and acts to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
