Upgrade Steps

This section describes how to upgrade Coveo for Sitecore from February 1, 2019 ( to February 26, 2019 ( If you're upgrading over multiple versions, Coveo has a procedure to streamline the process.


For the best Coveo for Sitecore experience, always follow the Best Practices When Upgrading Coveo for Sitecore.

Step 1: Upgrade Coveo for Sitecore


Make sure the Microsoft MVC security update MS14-059 is installed on every Sitecore host in your environment.

  1. Log in to the Sitecore Desktop.

  2. Access the Installation Wizard (Sitecore Start Menu > Development Tools > Installation Wizard).

  3. Upload and install the Coveo for Sitecore XX package. You can find it in Downloads.

  4. When prompted to overwrite files, click Yes to all.

  5. When prompted to overwrite items, select Overwrite, then click Apply to all.


    You might be prompted twice with this question. Select the Overwrite option and click Apply to all both times.

  6. Once the installation is completed, make sure that you restart both the Sitecore client and server.

Step 2: Delete Two Configuration Files From the \Modules\Coveo Folder

Sitecore 9

The following configuration files have been moved from the <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\App_Config\Modules\Coveo folder to the new <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\App_Config\Modules\Coveo\Analytics folder:

  • Coveo.Analytics.XConnect.config.disabled

  • Coveo.Analytics.xDB.config

When upgrading, these two files you already had in the <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\App_Config\Modules\Coveo folder won’t be deleted automatically. You must therefore delete the Coveo.Analytics.XConnect.config.disabled and Coveo.Analytics.xDB.config files located in the <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\App_Config\Modules\Coveo folder so that only the ones in the new <SITECORE_INSTANCE_ROOT>\App_Config\Modules\Coveo\Analytics folder remain.

Step 3: Publish Your Site

In the Sitecore Content Editor, perform a publish site action. This ensures any changes related to Coveo components in the upgrade are published to the web database.
