2019 Interface Editor Releases

This page summarizes the new feature and bug fix introduced throughout 2019.

June 2019 Release (v1.11.4)

New Drag and Drop Components

The Category Facet, Timespan Facet, and Simple Filter components are now available as drag and drop components in the Interface Editor.

New Way to Create Tabs

The Add a New Tab button has been removed. Pre-configured tabs can now be created more naturally by drag and dropping a Tab component in the page.

Simplified Settings

Several advanced components and options have been removed from the Interface Editor in an effort to make it easier to use.

You can still leverage advanced components and options in the markup configuration of your search page, which is accessible through the Code View tab in the Interface Editor (see Automatic Initialization and Using Attributes).

  • You want your search page to send custom context information along with each query and usage analytics event.

    Since you can no longer create PipelineContext components in the Interface Editor UI, you configure the component directly in the markup of your search page:

    <div id="search" class="CoveoSearchInterface">
      <!-- ... -->
      <script class="CoveoPipelineContext type="text/context">
          "userRole": "developer"
      <!-- ... -->
  • You want to set the allowQueriesWithoutKeywords option of your main search interface to false.

    Since this option has been removed from the Interface Editor UI, you add the corresponding data- attribute in the markup configuration of your SearchInterface component:

    <div id="search" class="CoveoSearchInterface" data-allow-queries-without-keywords="false">
      <!-- ... -->

February 2019 Release (v1.9.5)

You can now use the basic mode in the filter expression editor to quickly and easily generate query filters event without any knowledge of the Coveo query syntax.

Filter Expression Editor Basic Mode

It’s no longer possible to use the query filter expression editor to modify folding expand expressions.

January 2019 Release (v1.8.11)

New Feature: Filter Expression Editor

The new filter expression editor helps you create or modify query filters by:

  • Providing you with field completion suggestions as you’re typing.
  • Parsing the query expression to ensure its validity.
  • Displaying a preview of the filtered query results.

Filter Expression Editor Demo

You can access the filter expression editor to create or modify:

  • Tab filter expressions

    Edit Tab Filter Expression

  • Facet additional filters

    Edit Facet Additional Filter

  • Search interface hidden expression

    Edit Search Interface hidden expression

  • Folding expand expression

    Edit Folding expand expression

    Although using the filter expression editor to modify folding expand expressions is possible in this version of the Interface Editor, doing so involves additional layers of complexity and should typically be avoided.
