New Features in Coveo Platform Releases

February 17, 2021 Release

Use Custom Table Fields in User Criteria Records

Though Coveo for ServiceNow supports base user criteria permissions in ServiceNow, user criteria records with advanced permissions are not supported by default. If your ServiceNow source is configured to replicate the ServiceNow item permission system, you can use custom table fields in a ServiceNow user criteria record with advanced (scripted) permissions to replicate the ServiceNow user permissions and index who can access source items through a Coveo-powered search interface.

Implement the Insight Panel in the New Agent Workspace Interface

If you use the new Agent Workspace interface released with Orlando, you can now implement the Coveo Insight Panel in its Contextual Side Panel. The Insight Panel then provides your agents with a search interface and proactive content recommendations powered by Coveo Machine Learning.

Agent Workspace new interface with Insight Panel in the Contextual Side Panel

Create a Field Blocklist for the Insight Panel

By default, all fields of record forms in which the Insight Panel is implemented are sent to Coveo Cloud when they are edited or when the agent makes a query. However, some fields may contain irrelevant or sensitive data that you don’t want to send to Coveo Cloud. In such a case, you can create an extension with the new getFieldsToIgnore function to specify the fields whose content shouldn’t be sent to Coveo Cloud.

This function is available for the Insight Panel when it is implemented in the classic Agent Workspace interface. With the new Agent Workspace interface, you can specify the fields to ignore as you configure the Insight Panel. You therefore don’t need to create an extension if you use this interface.
