Sitecore Instance Filter

Coveo for Sitecore Specific Rendering Implements the CoveoForSitecoreLocalExpression component which adds filters for the current Sitecore instance to the constant query expression (cq) of Search API calls.

It registers a handler in the onSitecoreContextInitialization event triggered by the CoveoForSitecoreExpressions component.

The new Filter results based on the current Sitecore context database option lets you control whether to add a filter on the current Sitecore context database in the cq. Prior to the October 30, 2020 release, search results and recommendations were automatically filtered on the current Sitecore context database using a source==<SITECORE_SOURCE_NAME> filter in the advanced query expression (aq).
