June 2019 Release (v1.11.4)

This page summarizes the new features and bug fixes introduced in the June 2019 Release (v1.11.4).

New Drag and Drop Components

The Category Facet, Timespan Facet, and Simple Filter components are now available as drag and drop components in the JavaScript Search Editor.

New Way to Create Tabs

The Add a New Tab button has been removed. Pre-configured tabs can now be created more naturally by drag and dropping a Tab component in the page.

Simplified Settings

Several advanced components and options have been removed from the JavaScript Search Interface Editor in an effort to make it easier to use.

You can still leverage advanced components and options in the markup configuration of your search page, which is accessible through the Code View tab in the JavaScript Search Interface Editor (see Automatic Initialization and Using Attributes).

  • You want your search page to send custom context information along with each query and usage analytics event.

    Since you can no longer create PipelineContext components in the JavaScript Search Interface Editor UI, you configure the component directly in the markup of your search page:

    <div id="search" class="CoveoSearchInterface">
      <!-- ... -->
      <script class="CoveoPipelineContext type="text/context">
        {
          "userRole": "developer"
        }
      </script>
      <!-- ... -->
    </div>
    
  • You want to set the allowQueriesWithoutKeywords option of your main search interface to false.

    Since this option has been removed from the JavaScript Search Interface Editor UI, you add the corresponding data- attribute in the markup configuration of your SearchInterface component:

    <div id="search" class="CoveoSearchInterface" data-allow-queries-without-keywords="false">
      <!-- ... -->
    </div>
