Is it possible to delete an indexed item from index manually?


Not sure how but sometime we see unexpected items from a different database or a site node within Sitecore in some of our website indexes. We would like to troubleshoot this obviously but meantime is there a way to manually delete a document( indexed item ) from the Coveo/Sitecore index?

I see "add an exclusion filter" on the actions menu on CES admin->Index browser. Is this equal to deleting the indexed item?

Unfortunately, the CES connector used by Coveo for Sitecore, the Queue connector, doesn't support removing documents from the CES index.

For your main issue, the problem is probably another Sitecore index configured with a <SourceName> identical to your main website CES source. This Sitecore index may be on the same Sitecore instance but could be on another one too.

Another potential cause could be that more than one Sitecore index is pushing messages to the same RabbitMQ queue that your website CES source is pulling from. We had an issue in the past when setting the didn't change the RabbitMQ queue name resulting in more than one CES source that were pulling from the same RabbitMQ queue. It was fixed in the February 2015 release of Coveo for Sitecore.
