Different Indexes for Content Authoring and Content Delivery
Should Content Authoring (CA) and Content Delivery (CD) servers just have 1 index? ie: Does CD need another index, or can they just have a single index for both?
Thanks in advance.
Content Authoring (CA) and Content Delivery (CD) servers should share the same indexes by configuring the
<SourceName> element to the same value on all servers. Also configure the
<SecurityProviderName> to have the same value on all the servers.
Never index the CD servers!
Simply follow this documentation on how to setup the Indexes section of the Coveo.SearchProvider.config file: https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/SC201507/Scaling+Coveo+for+Sitecore+Over+Multiple+Servers
In brief, you need to:
- Disable strategies on the CD server
- Add the SourceName node on your indexes
- Add the SecurityProviderName and ServerUrl nodes
