  2. Click Add Key

Step 3: Edit API Key

  1. Go to the Configuration tab
  2. Type Workstation in the Key Name
  3. Go to the Privileges tab -> Analytics section
  4. Change the Access Level of the following fields:
    •  Analytics data: select Push
    • Impersonate: select Allow
  5. Still in the Privileges tab, go to the Search section
  6. Change the Access Level of Execute queries to Allowed

  7. After selecting ‘Allowed’ a popup will appear, select the API Key Scopes that you want Workstation to pull search results

    • In API Key: Paste API Key that you previously copied

Step 6: (Optional) Create Data Source Property

Since Coveo can integrate with other 3rd parties, Workstation can display the source of search results next to the magnifying glass.

If this is not populated, a default field called objecttype is used.

If the objecttype field is empty, there isn’t a source data to display so the magnifying glass won’t display either.


  • Search results without a title won’t be displayed
