Sitecore Legacy Connector


The Coveo legacy connector for Sitecore allows users to index Sitecore CMS content as well as Sitecore Web and Master database content. All the site items, the referenced media library items, and security elements can be indexed.

Note: This section describes the legacy connector for Sitecore. This connector remains available for use in existing instance but it is strongly recommended to rather use the Sitecore 2nd generation connector that offers several advantages (see Advantages Over the Legacy Connector and Migrating from the Legacy to the New Sitecore Connector).

Supported Sitecore content

  • All the site items

  • Referenced media library items

  • Security elements

Site item metadata indexing

The Coveo Platform can index Sitecore metadata to allow the Coveo administrator to create facets, custom fields, sorting, and group by, based on this metadata (see About Sitecore Metadata with the Legacy Connector and Defining a Sitecore Mapping File for the Legacy Connector).

Media library item indexing

The Coveo Platform can index the complete media library of Sitecore including files such as images, PDF, and other binary documents (see Include Media Library).


The Coveo Platform can index security permissions from the permission model of Sitecore (see Configuring a Sitecore Security Provider for the Legacy Connector and How CES Handles the Sitecore Permission Model with the Legacy Connector).

Incremental refresh

The connector periodically queries Sitecore for the latest changes, keeping the index content up-to-date (see Enabling Incremental Refresh on a Sitecore Database for the Legacy Connector).

Multilanguage support for items

The Coveo Platform can index the various language versions of an item, or optionally index the specific language version that is needed (see Languages).
