Coveo Search Interface

Implements the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework SearchInterface component. The SearchInterface component is the root and main component of a Coveo-powered search page.

The new Filter results based on the current Sitecore context database option lets you control whether to add a filter on the current Sitecore context database in the constant query expression (cq). Prior to the October 30, 2020 release, search results and recommendations were automatically filtered on the current Sitecore context database using a source==<SITECORE_SOURCE_NAME> filter in the advanced query expression (aq).

Usage Notes

  • The Coveo Search Interface rendering automatically adds the Automatic Boosting, Query Filter, Query Ranking, and Sitecore Instance Filter renderings to the page. These renderings are configured through the Coveo Search Interface data source.

  • Some features of the Automatic Boosting, Query Filter, and Query Ranking renderings are only available with the Enterprise Edition.

Coveo Hive SXA

Coveo for Sitecore SXA rendering insertion locations aren’t limited by placeholder Allowed Controls. The Coveo Search Interface rendering may therefore be inserted throughout the partial design, whether in Coveo for Sitecore or Sitecore placeholders.
