How to Use the Index Browser

The Index Browser page displays the folders and documents contained in a source. From it, it is possible to display the properties of documents as well as apply actions (refresh, delete, add exclusion filter, etc.) to single folders and documents.

To display folders and documents in the Index Browser

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

  2. Access the Index Browser page (Content > Index Browser).

    Tip: When you are in a source page, you can also conveniently access the Index Browser page by clicking Indexed Documents on the button bar.

  3. In the Collection drop-down list, select the collection to display.

  4. In the Source drop-down list, select the source to display.

  5. In the Filter field, you can optionally enter an expression which must be present in the path of the folders and documents displayed.

    Example: The expression Coveo finds documents with the address http://www.coveo.com/en/ and rejects documents with the address file://Intranet/Documents/Final.

    You can also use Wilcards ( * and ?) and regular expressions (complete paths). When regular expressions are used, select Regular expression.

    Note: When a regular expression is used, the address must be exact. For example, http://www.coveo.com/ does not display documents because this folder does not exist. Enter either http://www.coveo.com/en/ or http://www.coveo.com/fr/.

    If subfolders containing the expression are displayed in the Folder Content section, select Include subfolders (otherwise only the main folders are listed; subfolders can be displayed by clicking the main folder).

  6. Click Update to apply the filter expression.

  7. In the Folder Content section, click the appropriate folders to display their content and click the documents to display their properties.
