Upgrade steps

This section describes how to upgrade Coveo for Sitecore from August 15, 2022 (5.0.1153.1) to February 15, 2023 (5.0.1202.1). If you’re upgrading over multiple versions, Coveo has a procedure to streamline the process.

Step 1: Upgrade Coveo for Sitecore


Make sure the Microsoft MVC security update MS14-059 is installed on every Sitecore host in your environment.

  1. Log into the Sitecore Desktop.

  2. Access the Installation Wizard (Sitecore Start Menu > Development Tools > Installation Wizard).

  3. Upload and install the Coveo for Sitecore 5.0.1202.1 package built for the specific version of Sitecore you’re running (for example, Sitecore 10.2). You can find it in Downloads.

  4. When prompted to overwrite files, click Yes to all.

  5. When prompted to overwrite items, select Overwrite, then click Apply to all.

    You might be prompted twice with this question. Select the Overwrite option and click Apply to all both times.

  6. Once the installation is completed, make sure that you restart both the Sitecore client and server.

Step 2: Publish your site

In the Sitecore Content Editor, perform a publish site action. This ensures any changes related to Coveo components in the upgrade are published to the web database.

⚠️Step 3: Adjust uses of Coveo for Sitecore codebase methods

Note the following changes that were made in the Coveo for Sitecore codebase:

  • Coveo.CloudPlatformClientBase.CloudPlatformClient.IsSecurityProviderCreationAllowed

    This method was removed from the codebase.

  • Coveo.AbstractLayer.Security.PermissionsProviderFactory.CreateProvider

    The signature of this method was changed. It now only accepts one argument of type SecurityConfiguration.

If you’re using these methods in your code, make the necessary adjustments.
