Sitecore Credential Usage in Coveo for Sitecore
At activation time, Coveo for Sitecore asks for the credentials of a Sitecore administrator user. These credentials can later be modified in the Coveo Command Center (see Security).
The Sitecore administrator credentials are used by Coveo for Sitecore to impersonate an administrator user to
index content only visible to administrators,
generate the Coveo for Sitecore diagnostic package, which can be sent to Coveo Support for troubleshooting (see Troubleshooting Problems Using the Coveo Diagnostic Page), and
access the Coveo Command Center.
Create a dedicated Sitecore admin user for Coveo and use it in the activation steps. Assigning a dedicated user to Coveo for Sitecore will prevent lock-down issues.
