Review Events Related to Specific Coveo Administration Console Resources

The Coveo Administration Console Activity panel shows events related to a Coveo Cloud feature. Members of the Administrators, Content Managers, and Relevance Managers built-in groups can use the panel for troubleshooting purposes.

Access the “Activity” Panel

The Activity panel can be displayed for several Administration Console features. See access instructions on the corresponding feature page:

Filter Activities by Date

The Activity panel may show several pages of events for Coveo Cloud features (e.g., source, fields, security identities, etc.). Filtering activities by date might help you when looking for a specific activity.

In the Activity panel, in the Action bar, click the time window to open a date picker dialog (see Access the “Activity” Panel):

  • Click a start date and an end date in the calendar.


  • Click Last 10 minutes, Last hour, Last 12 hours, Last day, Last week, or Last month to apply the specified time window.

  • Click Apply to apply your time window choice and close the date picker dialog.

  • By default, the panel shows the activities that occur in the last 24 hours.

  • All activities logged during the current calendar year are available for review.

  • Next to the Select a start date and Select an end date boxes, you may click Set-to-Now to apply the current date and time to the corresponding box.

Browse Activities

When over 10 activities are displayed, you might have to browse through them to find what you’re looking for. To do so, you can:

  • Show more activities on the page (default is 10). At the lower-left corner of the page, click 100 to show more rows.

  • In the lower-right corner, use the pager or the Next and Previous links to navigate to other pages and see older activities.

Cancel a Pending Activity

When an activity is scheduled, but pending because another activity is ongoing, you can cancel the pending activity, such as if you start a source rebuild twice by mistake (see Refresh, Rescan, or Rebuild Sources).

  1. In the Activity panel, in the activity list, optionally filter activities by date (see Access the “Activity” Panel and Filter Activities by Date). Then, click the pending activity that you want to abort.

  2. In the Action bar, click Cancel.


In the Activity panel, you can review the following information:

  • Started column
