Toggling Live Monitoring for a Source

Some repository types can detect that a document was added, modified or deleted and notify external systems. The File connector uses this technique called live monitoring to maintain the index up-to-date with the source content (see About Incremental Refresh and Live Monitoring). When supported, live monitoring is enabled by default. You can however manually enable or disable live monitoring.

To toggle live monitoring for a source

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

  2. Access the Sources and Collections page (Index > Sources and Collections).

  3. In the Collections section, click the collection that contains the source for which you want to toggle the live monitoring state.

  4. In the Sources section, click the appropriate source.

  5. On the horizontal button bar:

    • When live monitoring is active, click Disable Live Monitoring to turn it off.


    • When live monitoring is turned off, click Enable Live Monitoring to activate it.
