Creating a Search Interface With the .NET Interface Editor

You may need to create a new Coveo .NET Front-End search interface to address the needs of your organization. Using the .NET Interface Editor, you can easily add a new search interface by creating a renamed copy of an existing search interface, and then modify the newly created search interface.

To create a new search interface with the .NET Interface Editor

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

  2. Click the Search Interfaces tab.

  3. On the menu bar, in the Current Interface drop-down list, select Create a New Interface.

  4. In the page that appears:

    1. In the Name box, enter the desired name for your new search interface.

      This name will not be visible to end-users. It will appear in the .NET Interface Editor as an item in the Current Interface drop-down list.

    2. In the Copy From drop-down list, select the existing search interface that is the closest to what you want for the new search interface.

    3. Click Create.

  5. In the General page that appears for the newly created search interface:

    1. Under Basic Configuration:

      1. In the Title box, enter the name visible to end-users for this search interface.

      2. In the Skin drop-down list, select the most appropriate existing skin for the new search interface.

        Important: It is recommended to leave the out-of-the-box skins unmodified and rather modify copies of them to ensure that out-of-the-box skins are updated when you migrate to a newer version of Coveo .NET Front-End.

    2. Under Equivalent Interfaces:

      1. In the Mobile Version drop-down list, select the corresponding search interface that should be used when accessing this interface from a mobile device.

      2. In the Outlook Version drop-down list, select the corresponding search interface that should be used when accessing this interface from the Outlook Sidebar.

    3. When you want to use custom icons for this interface, under Interface Icon, click Change next to each icon size, and then upload or browse to select a new icon.

    4. When you want to customize or remove the logo appearing next to the search box in the search interface, use the parameters under Customize Logo (see Changing the Logo Appearing in a Search Interface With the .NET Interface Editor).

    5. Click Apply.
