Configuring the Sitecore Credentials

The sitecoreUsername and sitecorePassword elements of the Coveo.SearchProvider.Custom.config file are Sitecore administrator credentials used by the Coveo Platform security provider to retrieve the security permissions of indexed items (see Sitecore Credential Usage in Coveo for Sitecore).

As the sitecorePassword element is encrypted, the Sitecore Credentials Configuration Wizard allows you to update your Sitecore username and password. This wizard is intended to be used by Sitecore Administrators.

Using the Sitecore Credentials Configuration Wizard

  1. Open the Coveo Search section of the Sitecore Control Panel (see Opening the Coveo Search Control Panel Section).
  2. Choose Configuration.
  3. The Coveo for Sitecore Configuration dialog will be displayed. Choose Sitecore Credentials.

  4. The Sitecore Credentials Configuration Wizard will be displayed. Update the username, enter the password, and choose Next.

  5. In the next screen, choose Close.

  6. Your Coveo.SearchProvider.Custom.config file (or Coveo.SearchProvider.Custom.config.example file if the former doesn’t exist) is updated with the username and the encrypted password. The next configuration synchronization will update the Coveo Platform security provider to use the updated values.
