Reviewing All Events Related to Coveo Cloud Administration Console Resources

A member with the appropriate privileges (member of the default Administrators group) can use the administration console Activity Browser page to inspect all organization activities in one place and in real-time. This page is particularly useful to filter activities with the available facets, and thus quickly identify problems or suspicious operations and audit operations related to security.

You might want to review the activities in your organization that have failed.

Activity panels for specific categories such as the activity of source can still be accessed through related administration console pages.

Access the “Activity Browser” Page

  1. If not already done, log in to the Coveo Cloud platform as a member of a group with the required privileges to manage API keys in the target Coveo Cloud organization.

  2. In the main menu on the left, under Organization, select Activity Browser.

Manage Ongoing Organization Activities

  1. On the Activity Browser page, under States, click the Executing checkbox.

  2. Click the ongoing activity you want to manage.

  3. In the Action bar, click More, and then select Resume, Pause, or Cancel.

    The availability of the options depends on the activity type.

    You can pause, cancel, or resume activities such as source refreshes, rescans, and rebuilds.

Inspect Organization Activities

On the Activity Browser page, in the table, you can review the history of creation, change, update, and deletion operations inside your organization.

Once you are done with the filters, you can bookmark the web page or copy/paste the URL in the place of your choice to be able to later access the same state of the Activity Browser.

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


    • Click Last 5 minutes, Last 30 minutes, Last hour or Last day to apply the specified time window.

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

  • Use the value of facets such as Categories, Results, States, and Resources to filter the activities to only the ones you want to review.

    • You can select more than one value per facet.

    • Once the focus is in a facet box, you can press the Tab key to navigate between facet values and then press the Space or Enter key to select values.

    You want to review the activities that have failed in your organization, so in the left section, under Results, you select the Failed check box.

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