Coveo Share Query

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.

Share Query Menu Option | Coveo for Sitecore 5 Implements the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework ShareQuery component which populates the Settings popup menu with a Share Query menu item.

Selecting the Share Query menu item allows a user to share the URL of the current search interface and the current complete query, which another user may paste directly in their searchbox.

Usage notes

  • In the Share Query modal, the value in the Complete query field represents the combined query expression (((q AND aq) OR dq) AND cq). When this combined query expression is pasted into a search box, it becomes the basic query expression (q) of the new search query (see About the query expression).

  • For combined query expressions pasted in a search box to be interpreted correctly, the Enable query syntax option in the search box data source must be set to Enabled.
