Coveo SearchView returns 0 results but REST service returns many

Hello, I have Coveo for Sitecore Coveo for Sitecore 80 3.0 (1116) installed in a sitecore instance and CES is set up on a remote server . Querying the rest service from a browser yields results: http:///coveo/rest?q=corporate http:///rest/search?q=corporate

However using the Coveo out of the box SearchView, 0 results are returned.

Looking at the CES Console after querying http:///coveo/rest?q=corporate Query corporate performed by extranet\Anonymous. 19886 results in 0.093 seconds.

After performing a search from the SearchView page: Query corporate performed by extranet\Anonymous. 0 results in 0.073 seconds.

Does anyone have any idea what this could mean? Thank you for your assistance! Ellie

If you have the same user, but different results between the coveo/rest proxy and the search page, I would look at the rules on the search page. The CES console will only show the query (the q parameter of the search object). To see the aq (advanced query) and cq (constant query), I would suggest to look at the browser console. Perform a query and look at the network tab, you should see a POST request against the Rest Proxy. In that query, look at the header >> form data in Chrome, or Params in FireFox , you should see a q, aq and cq parameters. Combine all of them in one query and test it in the Coveo Index Browser.

Let me know what you find.
