    Important

    Coveo Relevance Generative Answering (RGA) is a paid product extension. Contact Coveo Sales or your Account Manager to add RGA to your organization license.

  • New Custom Context Provider picklist

    The Custom Context Provider picklist that’s now part of the Coveo Hosted Insight Panel component makes it easy to augment queries with additional context returned by your custom Apex class.

  • New EXECUTE_QUERY privilege added to the platform token

    The EXECUTE_QUERY privilege has been added to the platform token that’s generated by the Hosted Insight Panel. As a result, the generated platform token (default or custom) can now be used to send queries to the Search API.

    Important

    Since the platform token doesn’t have a search hub or an enforced pipeline, we strongly advise against using pipeline filters to exclude sensitive information from your query results. See Safely apply content filtering and Query pipeline routing mechanisms and rules for details.

    Fixed an issue where the Hosted Insight Panel wasn’t loading due to an error related to the ApexTypeImplementor object.
