Coveo Search Resources

Coveo for Sitecore Specific Rendering This rendering adds JavaScript and CSS references required to use the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework renderings and the Coveo for Sitecore-specific renderings.

This rendering generates a <div class="CoveoForSitecoreContext"> tag whose attribute values serve primarily to add Sitecore context information (e.g., current language, current database) to search queries and result templates.

Data Source Options

Option name Description
Use local files for Coveo JavaScript Search Framework When selected, Coveo for Sitecore uses the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework files included in the downloaded package. When not selected, Coveo for Sitecore references the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework CDN files (see Understanding How Coveo for Sitecore Loads the Coveo JavaScript Files (CDN)).
CDN Version Used to select a specific version of the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework CDN files to use, overriding the default version of the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework the Coveo for Sitecore package was set to use. The CDN version must be in the major.minor format (e.g., 2.5549). Important : Coveo can’t guarantee your Coveo for Sitecore package works with a version of the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework that's different than the one your Coveo for Sitecore version was coded for and tested with.
Resources local path The path to the Coveo for Sitecore css, image, templates, init and Coveo JavaScript Search Framework local files js folders.
Coveo REST endpoint The path to the Coveo REST endpoint proxy.
Additional Dictionaries The additional dictionary folders in which Coveo for Sitecore clients have saved custom Dictionary entry items. Important : Do not store custom Dictionary entry items in the /sitecore/system/Dictionary/Coveo Hive folder as this folder is overwritten when upgrading Coveo for Sitecore (see Create a Dictionary for Your Custom Labels).
