How to customize CoveoSearch Salesforce page

In a Salesforce (sandbox org), how can I customize the CoveoSearch Salesforce page ? I see the source code, but cannot change it. I want to remove a search tab (Opportunities).

In Salesforce, you cannot directly modify a page that comes from an installed package.

What you can do is copy paste the source code from the page, and create a new customized page. Also, since your page is not part of the package, you will have to manually change the namespace of the different components.

<apex:page standardstylesheets="false" sidebar="false" docType="html-5.0">
    <coveosolutions:coveojssearch stylesheet="CoveoFullSearch.css"></coveosolutions:coveojssearch>


The autocompleter inside salesforce should propose stuff related to Coveo package as you type coveo[…]

And when you save, it should also warn you if you are referencing stuff that doesn't exist in the current namespace.

Note that you should remove the CoveoConfigurationCheck component since it's not global and it's not useful in a custom context.
