Hi Thandava,

To complement the answer above, here some additional information in the context of the Intermediate Analytic class:


If I understand correctly, you are referring to the Metrics correct? The Unique Query, Unique Keyword and Unique Search Cause Metrics right?

These 3 Metrics counts the unique value for each of their respective Dimensions.

  • The Unique Query Metrics counts how many unique values the Query Dimensions has for a given period.
  • The Unique Keywords Metrics counts how many unique values the Keywords Dimensions has for a given period.
  • The Unique Search Cause Metrics counts how many unique values the Search Cause Dimension has for a given period.

Consequently, these Metrics are computed from their Dimensions Value and thus cannot be "created".

However, here an example:

For a given period, these are the only queries that were sent to a Coveo Cloud Organization

  • Star wars
  • Draft
  • Fantasy Soccer

For that period:

  • Unique Query Metrics = 3
  • Unique Keywords Metrics = 5

For the Unique Search Cause Metrics, that depends on how many different search operations were made on the page. The Search Cause dimensions is what allows you to distinguish between different Search operations.

I invite you to check the documentation bellow for more information.

Bottom line, Unique Search Cause will simply count how many different type of Search operations were made, as defined in the documentation bellow.

I am not sure I understand your question correctly, what do you mean by "create a?"

The Unique keyword, query and Search cause are all analytics dimensions that are already available.

They are mainly use to create dashboard cards in Analytics reports.

You can find a list of the dimensions and their definitions here:
