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.
