Coveo PipelineContext Component (CoveoPipelineContext)

The PipelineContext component injects custom contextual information into the search requests and usage analytics events sent from a search interface.

This component is meant to be initialized on a script HTML tag whose type attribute is set to text/context and whose optional JSON content defines the custom information to send (each value can be set to a string or array of strings).

See Sending Custom Context Information.

Methods

debugInfo

  • debugInfo(): any

disable

  • disable(): void

getBindings

getContext

getContextKeys

  • getContextKeys(): string[]

getContextValue

  • getContextValue(key: string): string | string[]
  • Get the context value associated to the given key.

    If the global variable Coveo.context contains the requested key, this method will return the value contained in Coveo.context instead of the one contained internally.

    This is especially useful in a Coveo for Salesforce context, where context values can be extracted from a backend service.

    Parameters

    • key: string

    Returns string | string[]

setContext

  • setContext(newContext: string | Context): void

setContextValue

  • setContextValue(contextKey: string, contextValue: string | string[]): void

Static get

  • get(element: HTMLElement, componentClass?: any, noThrow?: boolean): BaseComponent
  • Get the bound component to the given HTMLElement. Throws an assert if the HTMLElement has no component bound, unless using the noThrow argument.
    If there is multiple component bound to the current HTMLElement, you must specify the component class.

    Parameters

    • element: HTMLElement

      HTMLElement for which to get the bound component.

    • Optional componentClass: any

      Optional component class. If the HTMLElement has multiple components bound, you must specify which one you are targeting.

    • Optional noThrow: boolean

      Boolean option to tell the method to not throw on error.

    Returns BaseComponent
