What Is an Index Source?

A source is an index subdivision defined by your Coveo administrator. It generally consists of a coherent group of documents that must all be from a single repository. A source is part of an index collection (see Understanding Coveo .NET Components Hierarchy).

Example: Your Coveo administrator could create separate sources for:
  • All files under the Engineering folder in a network file system.

  • All email messages stored in a Microsoft Exchange server.

  • All documents in a SharePoint intranet.
