Understanding the Command Center

The Command Center gives you more control over a Coveo for Sitecore installation through an administration user interface. The Command Center also displays index related information and provides a convenient means to perform common configurations and actions.

Accessing the Command Center

To access the Command Center as a Sitecore administrator

  1. Open the Coveo Search section of the Sitecore Control Panel (see Opening the Coveo Search Control Panel Section).

  2. Choose Indexing Manager.

    You can also access the Command Center using URL http://[INSTANCE NAME]/coveo/command-center/index.html, where [INSTANCE NAME] is the name of your Sitecore instance. Non Sitecore administrators can only access the Command Center by URL (see Giving Access to the Command Center).

Command Center Sections

The following is a summary of the information you can access and the actions you can perform in each section of the Command Center.

Indexing Manager

The Indexing Manager section of the Command Center provides an overview of index-related information. It lists your Coveo indexes, displays the index crawlers and the content each goes through, and the database where the information is stored.

You can initiate index rebuilding from the interface and subsequently monitor the status of the rebuild. The Indexing Manager also allows you to handpick the Sitecore fields that you want to index.

For more information about the Indexing Manager, see Understanding the Indexing Manager.

Relevance Manager

The Relevance Manager section of the Command Center provides general information regarding Coveo Cloud relevance features and direct links to those features in the Coveo Cloud administration console.

For more information about the Relevance Manager, see Understanding the Relevance Manager.

Coveo Cloud Manager

The Coveo Cloud Manager section of the Command Center allows you to change the Coveo Cloud organization your Sitecore instance is linked to.

You can also modify security and content indexing settings in this section.

For more information about the Coveo Cloud Manager, see Updating Coveo for Sitecore Settings.

Getting Help

In each Command Center section, just next to the page title, you can click the help button to reach the related documentation article.

The Organization Status Dialog

When a Coveo Cloud trial organization has been idle for some time, it is paused automatically. When you try to access the Command Center and your organization has been idle for some time, one of the following dialogs is displayed:

If you click the Resume button, the organization status then changes to Resuming.

The dialog automatically closes once the organization has finished resuming and is, once again, fully functional.

You can also resume your cloud organization through the Coveo Cloud administration console, in the main menu, in the Status section.
