Coveo for Sitecore Search View Filtering
I have Coveo for Sitecore Free Edition running on Sitecore 8 and am having a hard time understanding proper use of the built-in Coveo renderings.
I added a Coveo Search Page (MVC) to my Content tree and published. Works great.
Now I want to restrict the search results to a specific template type. Call it "My Custom Page".
So I go into Presentation Details for my search page to edit the properties of the Coveo Search View rendering. And update the Filtering expression rules to the following:
Basic filtering where the item template is exactly My Custom Page
I save the page, Publish Site, refresh the search page… Filter isn't applied. It shows all results rather than only results of type My Custom Page.
Am I missing a step? Do I need to configure the template ID field for faceting? Something else?
The Rule Editor is disabled in the free edition of Coveo for Sitecore. You can use the JsSearch Framework : https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/JsSearch/Home to filter the search results.
