Enable coveo on-prem analytics for Sitecore
Im using CES 7.0 with Coveo for Sitecore 8.0 3.0 (1123). I'm trying to enable coveo analytics so I setup a sql DB using this guide. I then added the analytics configuration to the config file located at \Coveo Enterprise Search 7\Web\Admin\Web.config. I then ran a few search queries from sitecore and I was expecting the data to be populated in the analytics db but it's not. I even went back to sitecore and checked the "Enable Coveo Analytics" checkbox, but still no luck.
Any suggestions on how to enable on-prem analytics for sitecore searches?
First, the on-prem analytics you are referring to is used by the Coveo .NET Front-End (aka .NET UI). Coveo for Sitecore rather uses the JS UI which does not support logging analytics events in an on-prem database.
Second, the web.config file that you modified is the one of the Coveo Admin Tool. One more reason for the changes to not be taken into account.
Hope this clarifies.
