Configuring a Google Sites Security Provider

The Coveo Google Sites connector supports the Google Sites site-level permissions.

When you want users searching for Google Sites content in a Coveo search interface to only see the content to which they have access in Google Sites, the connector needs a security provider to be able to index the permissions for each indexed Google Sites item.

Note: You can get familiar with how Coveo components deal with permissions on documents both at indexing and query time (see Security) .

To configure a Google Drive for Work security provider

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

  2. Select Configuration > Security.

  3. In the navigation panel on the left, click Security Providers.

  4. In the Security Providers page, click Add to create a new security provider.

  5. In the Modify Security Provider page:

    1. Configure the following required parameters:


      Choose a meaningful name to identify the security provider.

      Example: When the security provider is to be used by a source indexing Google Sites associated with an Apps domain, you can enter Google Sites Apps Domain Security Provider

      Security Provider Type

      In the drop-down list, select Google Apps (x64).

      User Identity

      In the drop-down list, select the user identity that you selected or created previously (see Google Sites Connector Deployment Overview).

      Activate domain-wide mode

      You must select this option when you plan to use this security provider with a Google Sites source that indexes a Google Sites for an Apps domain.

      Clear this option when the security provider is for a source indexing Google Sites of an individual user.

      Security Provider

      Select the security provider that you selected or created to allow this security provider to resolve and expand the groups (see Google Sites Connector Deployment Overview).

      [Domain-wide mode] Managed domains

      Enter the domain that you want to index. When your Google Apps account contains more than one domain, you can enter a semicolon-separated list of domains to index. The security provider will resolve and expand groups for the specified domain(s).


      • One domain:

      • Multiple domains:;

      Important: The domain(s) specified in this list must match the one(s) specified in the Addresses box of the source that will use this security provider (see Configuring and Indexing a Google Sites Source).

      Allow Complex Identities

      Leave this option cleared as it does not apply to Google Sites.

    2. Click Apply Changes.

What's Next?

Create and index a source (see Configuring and Indexing a Google Sites Source).
