Adding Search Interfaces to a Search Hub With the .NET Interface Editor

A search hub contains one or more Coveo .NET Front-End search interfaces. As a Coveo administrator, you can add search interfaces to a search hub.

For each .NET search interface, you can specify if the search interface can receive or send results from/to other search interfaces of the search hub through mini queries. The mini queries appear as mini-results (see About Mini-Results in .NET Search Interfaces). You can also assign audiences to each search interface so that only members of the selected audiences have access to the search interface (see Adding an Audience With the .NET Interface Editor).

To add a search interface with the .NET Interface Editor

  1. Access the Coveo .NET Front-End Interface Editor (see Opening the .NET Interface Editor).

  2. Select Search Hubs > Content.

  3. On the menu, in the Current Hub drop-down list, select the hub to which you want to add a search interface.

  4. In the panel on the left, select the hub version to which you want to add a search interface (Standard Version, Mobile Version, or Outlook Version).

  5. Click Add.

  6. Under Edit Hub Content:

    1. In the Interface drop-down list, select the search interface that you want to add to the search hub.

    2. Select the Enable mini queries from this search interface check box to allow this interface to provide search highlights to produce mini-results in other search interfaces.

    3. Select the Enable mini queries results in this search interface check box to allow displaying search highlights as mini-results from other search interfaces.

    4. Select the Overridable by Per Uri settings or query string arguments check box in cases where you want to be able to change the search interface by passing the search interface name via a query or using per URI settings (see Adding a Per URI Setting With the .NET Interface Editor). When selected, at loading time, a search interface looks at the query string and uses the specified search interface rather than its normal configuration.

      Note: This override is a legacy feature that was used to switch between search interfaces before search hubs where introduced. In SharePoint, it can still be useful to switch between search interfaces as a function of the SharePoint site.

    5. When you want to restrict the access to this search interface to a specific group of users, in the Available Audiences list, select one or more audiences that are allowed to access this interface, and then click to move one or more selected audiences to the Selected Audiences list.

    6. Click OK.
