Dropbox New API

As of June 28, Dropbox will deprecate the first version of its API to focus on version 2. This will impact our connector, which uses this API to crawl Dropbox content. You must therefore download the June 2017 CES 7 update, and then update your field set so that your Dropbox source keeps updating smoothly. [more]

Diagnostic Tool Update Notifications

A desktop notification is now prompted whenever a new version of the Diagnostic Tool is available for download. If the user accepts, the latest version is automatically downloaded and installed on the server.

This feature allows clients to benefit from the latest troubleshooting tools without having to actively upgrade the Diagnostic Tool manually every time a new version is released.

  • System Status

    Generates an overview of the Coveo Enterprise Search 7 service and related processes.
