About Usage Analytics Limits

This topic lists the usage analytics limits inside the Coveo Cloud Platform that either come from the platform itself or your license. Contact Coveo when you want to extend your license limits.

Some of the usage analytics licensing limits you agreed upon when signing the Coveo Customer Agreement are displayed in the Coveo Cloud administration console Settings page/panel.

To access the Settings page/panel, in the navigation pane, under Organization, click Settings, and then select the Analytics tab (see Managing Your Coveo Cloud V1 Organization Settings).

In the Settings page/panel, the displayed limits are the following:

The following additional limits also apply:

Maximum number of characters for every dimension value See Dimension Value Limits

  • By default 25.

Dimensions and the maximum length of their logged values

Each dimension (custom and out-of-the-box) has its own column in the database. Each column can only contain values of a certain type and a certain length depending on the dimension. The following table displays the column name and the DB data type as well as the limit of characters the column can contain when applicable (see Data types and SQL General Data Types).

When you send blocks of text through a custom dimension (text), the database only keeps the first 256 characters.
