Description

Your Coveo Search page in Sitecore does not load and/or returns a 500 error.

Browsing the Rest Proxy ([sitecore instance]/coveo/rest), you see the following error:

Handler "CoveoSearchEndpoint" has a bad module "ManagedPipelineHandler" in its module list.

Environment

  • Coveo for Sitecore
  • All builds

Resolution

  1. Open your IIS Manager and look at the advanced settings for the app pool your Sitecore site is associated with.

  2. Change the Managed Pipeline mode to Integrated.

Explanation

The Sitecore instance running in Classic Pipeline mode cannot load the Coveo components properly. An integrated pipeline mode is needed.
