Coveo Search Interface with no Results and only Facets
We have a weird ask and I am sure with hive it could be doable. But, wanted to check in. So, can we actually add only Facets to a Sitecore template with out showing any results or what so ever?
Basically, a Coveo Search Interface that will fire a query with potential filters/scope etc., and Facets that show up for that query, but, we do not care to show actual results(result list) to the right.
Wondering if it is a safe assumption that it is possible.
It is possible, but each click will still trigger a query which will count towards your monthly queries count. Include a Search Interface component, but don't put any Result List component :).
Here is an alternative: You could instead leverage the listFieldValues call that allows you get the same output as you would for a single facet. It is not quite as easy as using the existing Coveo Facet component, but if you want simple counts for a single field name, this could serve your purpose.
In other words, it really depends on what you want to achieve in the end.
