Display linked items in search results page
I am trying to achieve document listing using Coveo search view(MVC). I want to group some of the documents from my media library under a folder located under a sitecore page. The grouping will be done using proxy items that are linked to media items located in media library. I want to point the datasource of the Coveo Search View(MVC) to this folder and display all the linked items from media library in the search results page. How can I display only the linked media items in the search results page (not the proxy items) based on the datasource location?
The Datasource field of a Coveo Search (View) component is not used to define the root item to be displayed in the search page but to define a Sitecore item containing the parameters of the component.
I don't think proxy items would work for a search page unless you process those items at indexing time to replicate the real media item fields on its proxy item. You could achieve this using the
coveoPostItemProcessingPipeline pipelines (see Understanding the Indexing and Search Pipelines).
