Sitemap Connector Deployment Overview

The following procedure outlines the steps needed to deploy the Sitemap connector. The steps indicate the order in which you must perform configuration tasks on the Coveo server.

To deploy the Sitemap connector

  1. Validate that your environment meets the requirements (see Sitemap Connector Requirements).

  2. On the Coveo server, in the Coveo Administration Tool:

    1. When you have an authentication on your website, create a user identity (see Adding a User Identity).

    2. Create a Sitemap field set to take advantage of the available Sitemap metadata.

      1. It is recommended to start by importing the default Sitemap field set file ([CES_Path]\Bin\Coveo.CES.CustomCrawlers.Sitemap.FieldSet.xml) to create fields for all the metadata available by default from sitemaps (see Exporting and Importing a Field Set).

      2. When you created custom metadata for your Sitemap documents, add corresponding fields to the field set (see Adding or Modifying Custom Fields).

    3. Configure and index a Sitemap source.

      The connector must know details about the Sitemap file or Sitemap index to index their content (see Configuring and Indexing a Sitemap Source).

    4. If you encounter issues, verify if modifying the default value of hidden source parameters can help resolve the problems (see Modifying Hidden Sitemap Source Parameters).
