Adding a Source

A source is a division of the index regrouping all documents indexed from a single repository.

To add a source

  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 Sources section, click Add. The Add Source page is displayed.

  4. In the Name box, enter a name to identify the source.

  5. In the Source Type drop-down list, select the type of repository to crawl.

    Note: The available source types correspond to the available connectors (see Coveo Platform Connectors).

  6. Select the appropriate source parameters.

    Note: The parameters vary for each type of source. You can get the list of topics describing the source configuration for each connector type by running the following query in the online help search box: @title="configuring and indexing" AND source

  7. Click Save to create the source without starting the indexing process. This option allows to modify the source properties prior to indexing.


    Click Save and Start to create the source and start the indexing process with the default properties.

    The Status page appears.

Note: For CES to recognize non Windows security permissions, security providers must be created (see Adding or Modifying a Security Provider).
