Uploading the Coveo Plugin on your Jive Server


Jive has a plugin framework which can be used to call the Jive APIs. The Jive 5/SBS/Clearspace Coveo connector works with such a plugin to expose a custom web service that it uses to retrieve complementary information from Jive. You need to upload the Coveo plugin on your Jive server.

Important: When you are installing the plugin on a Jive server that was updated from Clearspace to SBS, before performing the following procedure, you must update the plugin database (see Updating the Database Schema of the Coveo Plugin for Jive).

To upload the Coveo plugin on Jive server

  1. Using a browser, access the Jive Administration Console (using a URL in the http://[MyJiveCommunity]/admin form).

  2. In Administration Console, select System > Plugins > Add Plugin.

  3. In the Available Plugins page:

    1. Under Install a new Plugin, click Choose File.

    2. Browse to the [CES_Path]\Bin folder on the Coveo Master server and select the Coveo.CES.CustomCrawlers.Plugin.[Platform].jar plugin file corresponding to your Jive installation.
