How to Modify Collection Security Permissions

Collections are groups of sources built around a theme. Each one has its own security permissions which override those of sources, meaning that users can never query the content of a source without having access to its parent collection. You can however modify the collection permissions at any time.

To modify collection security permissions

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Access the Sources and Collections page (Index > Sources and Collections).

  3. In the Collections section, expand the appropriate collection drop-down list.

     

  4. Select Edit Permissions. The Permissions section is displayed.

  5. To grant access to the collection, enter the account name of the user or group (it must be an NT/AD account in the form domain\username) in the Allowed Users field and click Add.

  6. To revoke access to the collection—if the account is listed in the Allowed Users section—select the account and click Delete.

  7. To revoke access to the collection—if the account is not listed in the Allowed Users section (because it is part of a listed group)—enter the account name (it must be an NT/AD account in the form domain\username) in the Denied Users section and click Add.
