Setting a Default Search Scope

Once you defined one or more search scopes (see Adding a Search Scope), you can set one of them as the default search scope.

In the .NET Interface Editor, when a default search scope is defined from the Administration Tool, you can select the Use the Default Scope from the Administration Tool option to assign the default search scope to a .NET search interface (see Configuring the Scope of a .NET Search Interface). In this case, if you change the default search scope from the Administration Tool, all .NET search interfaces to which the default search scope is assigned will be automatically updated.

To set the default search scope

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

  2. In the Administration Tool, select Index > Search Scopes.

  3. In the Search Scopes page: 

    1. Select the check box in front of the search scope that you want to set as the default search scope.

    2. Click Set as Default.

      A Default button appears next to the search scope to identify that it is the default search scope and to allow you to revoke its default status.
