Installing Coveo for Sitecore SXA Components
The Coveo for Sitecore SXA package is an add-on module that goes on top of Coveo for Sitecore to make the Coveo for Sitecore Hive components available in SXA-powered pages.
Before installing the Coveo for Sitecore SXA package, you must ensure that your Sitecore instance meets the following requirements:
Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) is installed (see Sitecore Experience Accelerator).
Coveo for Sitecore is installed (see Releases and Downloads).
The version of Coveo for Sitecore and Coveo for Sitecore SXA must be the same.
For upgrades, first upgrade Coveo for Sitecore, and then upgrade Coveo for Sitecore SXA.
Installing the Coveo for Sitecore SXA Package
Upload and install the last Coveo for Sitecore SXA official package from Releases and Downloads using the Sitecore Installation Wizard ( Sitecore Desktop > Start Menu > Development Tools > Installation Wizard).
Ensure that you pick the version matching your installed SXA version.
