Configuring a Yammer Security Provider

When you choose to index document permissions associated with Yammer items, the Coveo connector needs a security provider. When document permissions are indexed, in Coveo search results, a user searching for Yammer content only sees the content to which he has access in Yammer.

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 Yammer 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 significant name to identify the security provider.

      Example: Yammer Security Provider

      Security Provider Type

      Select Yammer (x64).

      User Identity

      Select the Yammer user identity that you created previously (see Adding a User Identity) .

      Security Provider

      Select an email security provider that you created to allow this Yammer security provider to map Yammer users (permissions) to email users (see Configuring an Email Security Provider) .

    2. Review the following parameter value that often does not need to be changed:

      User cache refresh time in seconds

      The maximum interval in seconds after which the user cache is reset. The default value is 3 600 seconds (1 hour).

    3. Leave the Allow Complex Identities option cleared as it does not apply to this type of security provider.

    4. Click Apply Changes.
