Hi Diego,

Not sure what you're trying to achieve. The roles are securities indexed on the documents, so it's not a "field" or something you can filter on. If you have access to the document you will see it, if no you won't.

So what I'm trying to achieve is something like this. I have a section of my site which is secured for a specific role for logged in users. By this content should be searchable only for the users that carry that role. does that make sense?

But this is supposed to be like that OOTB since permissions are indexed on your documents… if you take a look at one of these documents in the Coveo Admin Tool, what do you see in the Permissions tab of this document?
