YouTube Connector Deployment Overview

The following procedure outlines the steps needed to deploy the YouTube connector. The steps indicate the order in which you must perform configuration tasks on both the Google and Coveo servers.

To deploy the YouTube connector

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

  2. On the Google server, create a Google API Console project to allow the Coveo connector access to the YouTube channel(s) of your choice (see Allowing the Coveo Connector Access to YouTube Data).

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

    1. Create a YouTube field set to take advantage of the available YouTube metadata.

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

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

    2. Configure and index a YouTube source.

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

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