Search API

The Search API exposes services which allow you to create and manage search authentication providers, hosted search pages, and Coveo Cloud query pipelines. Most importantly, the Search API allows you to perform queries on an index.

Search pages based on the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework are powered by the Search API.

Search integrations with the Coveo Cloud platform typically rely on the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework rather than on the Search API (and other APIs) directly.

If, for some legitimate reason, you cannot use the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework in your custom search integration with the Coveo Cloud platform, please consult Building Custom Search Integrations using Coveo Cloud PaaS.

In the Coveo Cloud V2 administration console, the Content Browser page (see Content Browser - Page), as well as all pages under the Search section (see Search - Section) use the Search API extensively.
