Associate an Intent-Aware Product Ranking model with a query pipeline

This is for:

Developer

When a Coveo Machine Learning (Coveo ML) Intent-Aware Product Ranking (IAPR) model has been created, it must be associated with a query pipeline to be effective in a search interface.

Organization members with the required privileges can access the Machine Learning tab of a query pipeline configuration page to manage Coveo ML model associations for that query pipeline.

Leading practices

Test the model efficiency

Once you’ve created a Coveo ML IAPR model, the leading practice is to test the model performance by doing an A/B test.

This allows you to test the model on a chosen proportion of the traffic passing through a given query pipeline. You can then assess the impact of the model by comparing the query pipeline search performance metrics with and without the model.

Once satisfied with the model efficiency, you can stop the A/B test to make the model effective for all the traffic passing through the query pipeline.

Associate an IAPR model

Important

Follow the model association leading practices when associating your model with your query pipeline.

  1. On the Query Pipelines (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page, click the query pipeline for which you want to associate the model, and then click Edit components in the Action bar.

  2. On the subpage that opens, select the Machine Learning tab, and then in the upper-right corner, click Associate Model.

  3. In the Model dropdown menu, select the desired model.

  4. On the right side, under Condition, you can optionally select a query pipeline condition in the dropdown menu or create a new one.

  5. Click Associate Model.

Edit an IAPR model association

Important

Follow the model association leading practices when associating your model with your query pipeline.

  1. On the Query Pipelines (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page, click the query pipeline for which you want to edit a model association, and then click Edit components in the Action bar.

  2. On the subpage that opens, click the desired model, and then click Edit in the Action bar.

  3. On the right side, under Condition, you can optionally select a query pipeline condition in the dropdown menu or create a new one.

  4. Click Save.

Dissociate a model

  1. On the Query Pipelines (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page, click the query pipeline from which you want to dissociate a model, and then click Edit components in the Action bar.

  2. On the subpage that opens, select the Machine Learning tab.

  3. In the Machine Learning tab, click the model you want to dissociate from the pipeline, and then click Dissociate in the Action bar.

The model is now dissociated from the pipeline.

Reorder model associations

The Coveo ML models of a given type are executed in the order in which they appear on the page until a condition is satisfied.

Important

The first model on the list will be used if no conditions are met.

  1. On the Query Pipelines (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page, click the query pipeline in which you want to reorder model associations, and then click Edit components in the Action bar.

  2. On the subpage that opens, select the Machine Learning tab.

  3. In the Machine Learning tab of the desired query pipeline, click the model whose position you want to change, and then use the Move up or Move down arrows in the Action bar to change the position of the model.
