Lithium Connector Deployment Overview

The following procedure outlines the steps needed to deploy the Lithium connector. The steps indicate the order in which you must perform configuration tasks in both Lithium and Coveo.

  1. Validate that your environment meets the requirements:

  2. When you want to index secured Lithium content, in Lithium, select or create the crawling account.

    The Coveo connector needs a Lithium account such as an administrator account with which it can fully crawl the Lithium content. Moreover, this account must have permission to make REST API read calls. This setting is available in your Lithium Community admin section, under Users > Permissions > Make REST API calls with read access.

  3. In the Coveo Administration Tool:

    1. When you want to index secured Lithium content, configure a user identity.

      The Coveo connector needs to know the Lithium account that you previously selected or created. You must create a CES user identity to use this account (see Adding a User Identity).

    2. Optionally, create a Lithium field set from the default XML field set file to be able to leverage Lithium metadata for example to create more useful facets.

      Copy the content of the default XML Lithium field set file (C:\Program Files\Coveo Enterprise Search 7\Bin\Coveo.CES.CustomCrawlers.Lithium.FieldSet.xml), and then import it to create a Lithium field set (see Exporting and Importing a Field Set).

    3. Configure and index the Lithium source.

      The Coveo connector needs to know details about the Lithium community to be able to index its content (see Configuring and Indexing a Lithium Source).

What's Next?

In the Interface Editor, create or modify a search interface to include facets based on Lithium fields to allow user to more easily drill-down in Lithium content (see Adding or Customizing a Facet With the .NET Interface Editor).
