Coveo component ResultsFiltersPreferences

The ResultFiltersPreferences component allows the end user to create custom filters to apply to queries. These filters are saved in the local storage of the end user.

Only advanced end users who understand the Coveo query syntax should actually use this feature (see Coveo Query Sytax Reference).

This component is normally accessible through the Settings menu. Its usual location in the DOM is inside the PreferencesPanel component.

See also the ResultsPreferences component.

Component Options

filters

filters: any

Specifies the default filters that all end users can apply.

End users will not be able to modify or delete these filters. They do not count as "user-made" filters, but rather as "built-in" filters created by the developer of the search page.

You can only set this option in the init call of your search interface. You cannot set it directly in the markup as an HTML attribute.

Filters should follow this definition:

filters: { [caption: string]: { expression: string; tab?: string[]; } };

Example:

Coveo.init(document.querySelector('#search'), {
  ResultsFiltersPreferences : {
    filters : {
      "Only Google Drive Items" : {
        expression : "@connectortype == 'GoogleDriveCrawler'"
        tab: ['Tab1', 'Tab2'],
      },
      "Another Filter" : {
        expression : [ ... another expression ... ]
      },
      [ ... ]
    }
  }
});

Default value is undefined.

includeInBreadcrumb

includeInBreadcrumb: boolean

Specifies whether to include the active filter(s) in the Breadcrumb.

Default value is true.

Markup configuration example(s) :
data-include-in-breadcrumb='true'
data-include-in-breadcrumb='false'

showAdvancedFilters

showAdvancedFilters: boolean

Specifies whether to show the Create button that allows the end user to create filters.

If you set this option to false, only the pre-populated ResultsFiltersPreferences.options.filters will be available to the end user.

Default value is true.

Markup configuration example(s) :
data-show-advanced-filters='true'
data-show-advanced-filters='false'
