Installing Maestro

In this article

Maestro is the Coveo software that manages and monitors your local workers and the State Store.

  1. Ensure that your environment meets the requirements.

  2. Download the Maestro installer on the server where you want to deploy the Crawling Module.

  3. Follow the installation wizard. If prompted to restart your machine in the process, run the installer again once the restart is completed.

  4. Once you have completed the installation wizard, you’re prompted to connect to Coveo and select a Coveo organization to link to the Crawling Module. The indexed content will be pushed to this organization.

We recommend opting for process described above whenever you can. When you’re faced with scenarios without a graphical interface, where interactive installs are not an option, perform a silent install of Maestro.

Once Maestro is installed on your machine, you can manage it with the REST API through the Maestro Swagger.


Maestro will automatically update the Crawling Module and itself to ensure that your setup is always compatible with Coveo’s most recent updates. Maestro’s automatic updates cannot be deactivated.

You can set the time of day Maestro’s updates occur by editing the Crawling Module configuration and updating the AutoUpdateTriggerTime parameter.

A summary of each update is available as a release note.
