Coveo for Sitecore 5 is now available!

Validating Connectivity of the New Hosts

To validate the connectivity between the Sitecore instance and CES, you can use a Coveo-powered search page from your site. If you don’t have such a page:

  1. Browse to http://<INSTANCE_HOSTNAME>/coveo/rest.

  2. Review the server response. The server should reply with a JSON response similar to this one:

     {
       "totalCount" : 171248,
       "duration" : 155,
       "indexDuration" : 109,
       ...
     }
    

    In this case, the REST endpoint returned results, so Sitecore can successfully communicate with CES.

  3. If the server doesn’t respond or gives you an error, check if all needed ports are open (see Troubleshooting Guide - On-Premises)
