Associating an XML Document Definition to a Source

An XML document definition is a collection of XML elements which describe the structure of XML content found in a source in order to index it. Because XML structures are variable, the Coveo Platform does not provide built-in XML document definitions. However, you can create different XML document definitions to reflect the structural specificities of each repository (see Adding an XML Document Definition and Adding and Modifying XML Elements to a Document Definition).

Once an XML document definition is configured you can assign it to one or more sources.

To associate an XML document definition to a source

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

  2. Select Index > Sources and Collections.

  3. In the Sources and Collections page:

    1. In the Collections section, select the collection containing the source that you want to modify.

    2. In the Sources section, expand the appropriate source drop-down list, and then select Edit XML Document Definition.

  4. In the XML Document Definition page corresponding to the source:

    1. In the XML Document Definition drop-down list, select the appropriate XML document definition.

    2. Click Apply Changes.
