Coveo for Sitecore - Get Index Name in ConfigurableComputedField

We have a custom index setup on Web. When we index an item using re-index tree, it fires of both the Coveowebindex and our custom index. How can we determine which index is processing when we are in a custom ConfigurableComputedField?

There are several post on declaring multiple indexes on a single database and most of them show that it is not a really good idea.

See this one for example:

So avoid using the root and use interface filtering, this way you won't have to micro-manage at the indexing level.

Thanks, that is good knowledge, and we can address that later, but for the time being, is there a way to find the index name during processing?

Unfortunately, I don't think this information is available in a computed field code. Can you describe what you try to achieve in your computed field. Maybe there's another way to resolve your problem.

We'll just go with separating the indexes, thank you.
