Accessing the Coveo for Sitecore API

Coveo for Sitecore offers APIs to configure the solution or perform actions through code. This article describes which service APIs are available and how to use them.

You can access the Swagger UI documentation endpoint of this API at http://[INSTANCE_NAME]/coveo/api/index/docs/index, where [INSTANCE_NAME] is replaced by your Sitecore instance name.

Disabling the Swagger UI Documentation Endpoint

To disable the Swagger UI documentation endpoint

  1. Open the /App_Config/Include/Coveo/Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService.config file.

  2. Comment out the element below.

<processor type="Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService.Processors.InitializeConfigServiceSwagger, Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService" />

The final result should look like this:

  <sitecore>
    <pipelines>
      <initialize>
        <processor type="Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService.Processors.InitializeConfigServiceApiRoutes, Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService" />
        <!-- <processor type="Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService.Processors.InitializeConfigServiceSwagger, Coveo.Service.Api.ConfigService" /> -->
        <processor type="Coveo.Service.Api.Framework.Processors.InitializeCoveoApiErrorFilter, Coveo.Service.Api.Framework" />
      </initialize>
    </pipelines>
  </sitecore>
</configuration>
