Understanding the License

Coveo for Sitecore comes shipped with a license tailored to the needs of a specific user or organization. This is why the following information is stored in the license.

Field name Description
Name Name of the customer who requested a license
Company Company of the customer who requested a license
Type Type of the license (Free, Pro, Pro Cloud, Enterprise, or Enterprise Cloud)
Support Plan Expiration Date The expiration date of your support plan, if you have one

The above information can be viewed in the Sitecore Control Panel (see Upgrading Your License).

Depending on the type of your license, advanced features may be enabled or disabled. With a Free edition license, all the advanced features are disabled. Disabled features don’t appear in the properties of Coveo for Sitecore components. Additionally, APIs related to these features are also disabled, meaning that calling them doesn’t have any effect.

Edition Features and Limits

Coveo for Sitecore edition-specific features and limits are indicated on the Coveo website (see Coveo for Sitecore Editions and Pricing).

Coveo organization limits are provided in the Coveo Cloud Console (see Administration Console - Settings Panel).

Advanced Features

Analytics Logging

Coveo-powered search interfaces can log various search-related events in the Sitecore DMS. These events can then be used for query suggestions or reporting.

Analytics Conditional Rendering

The Conditional Rendering feature includes two pieces:

Content Personalization

The term Content Personalization refers to the Automatic Boosting feature, which is driven in part by the data stored in the DMS.

Automatic Boosting is a feature that can help you personalize your Search components by leveraging information coming from the profiles and patterns. Automatic Boosting allows you to boost the ranking of search results based on a visitor pattern card, prioritizing certain results over others (see Using Automatic Boosting).

Layout Personalization

This feature can leverage the DMS data to personalize your Coveo Components according to the current visitor pattern card (see Personalizing Coveo Components).

Rule Set Editor

The Coveo Search component can use a set of rules to boost and/or filter search results. This is the simplest and quickest way to boost or filter your search results (see Adding Boosting or Filtering Expressions).

The Rule Set Editor is disabled in the Free and Pro editions. Instead, you will have to use the JavaScript Search Framework V1.0 or JavaScript Search Framework V2.0 for Coveo Hive components to manually adjust the ranking of search results.

As of the November 2018 version of Coveo for Sitecore 4.1, JavaScript Search Framework V1.0 is deprecated.

Coveo ML Recommendations

This is a Coveo Machine Learning feature which provides recommendations based on the behavior of similar users (see Getting Recommendations).
