Coveo Breadcrumbs

Legacy feature

This article pertains to the Coveo Hive framework which is now in maintenance mode.

Choose one of Coveo’s more modern, lightweight, and responsive libraries for any future search interface development. See the search interface Implementation guide for more details.

Implements the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework Breadcrumb component which displays a summary of the active query filters and provides links to remove the currently applied filters.

Usage notes

  • The Coveo Breadcrumbs rendering provides links to remove applied filters one by one. Each time a user clicks one of these links, a new Search API call is triggered.

  • The Coveo Breadcrumbs rendering also provides a Clear All Filters link which removes all facet filters and triggers a single new Search API call with the current search expression and no facet filtering.

  • The rendering is not displayed when no facet filtering is configured (that is, the style attribute of the <div> element is set to "display: none;").

  • You can customize the CSS associated with this rendering.
