On-Premises Usage Analytics Module

Deprecated The on-premises Usage Analytics module is no longer maintained by Coveo. Rather consider using the Coveo Usage Analytics cloud service to monitor on-premises search usage (see Coveo Cloud Usage Analytics).

The Usage Analytics module provides information that helps administrators optimize their Coveo .NET search implementation by analyzing the paths users follow while searching and navigating in the results. By tracking and understanding user behavior, the administrator can better determine the user search requirements, assess performance of the system, and optimize their search results – ultimately increasing adoption of the .NET search solution.

The on-premises Usage Analytics database automatically tracks all user actions performed in the Coveo .NET Front-End search interfaces, including result click-through, faceted navigation, and the use of the different user interface functions. The actions are saved in the database along with user information, search session data, and the opened documents on which the action was taken.

The administrator uses the Usage Analytics user interface to view and analyze the logged information. The Analytics user interface offers numerous filters to help find precise search usage information.

Note: The Analytics tab appears at the top of the default web interface only after the Usage Analytics module has been deployed and only when the user has Coveo administrator rights. End-users do not see the Analytics tab.

Steps for using the Usage Analytics module

  1. Deploy the Usage Analytics module

    You need to setup the database that will collect the Usage Analytics data, enable the Usage Analytics module, and then connect it to the database (see Deploying the On-Premises Usage Analytics Module).

    If you experience problems, see Troubleshooting and Handling Usage Analytics Module Errors.

  2. Learn how to use the Analytics user interface

    The Analytics user interface contains numerous filters allowing you to quickly and easily review the Usage Analytics data (see Analytics User Interface Elements and Refining Usage Analytics Results).

  3. Exploit the Usage Analytics data

    The Usage Analytics data being collected in a database, you can develop your own queries and even customize the data that is collected (see Usage Analytics Database Content and Customizing the Collected Usage Analytics Data).
