Setting up a Coveo Trial

It’s not so straight forward in setting up a trial account without utilizing one of their plugins. e.g. Coveo for Sitecore. Hence, I’ve tried to narrow down the instructions as follows.

Logging into Coveo Cloud V2 Admin

https://platform.cloud.coveo.com/

The following are steps (from Coveo’s support page) that help you with getting your Access Token. You’ll need this in order to create an Organization.

Getting Your Coveo Cloud V2 Platform Access Token

Note: The following steps are from Coveo’s support pages directly.

To get your Coveo Cloud V2 platform access token:

  1. In your web browser, open your developer tools.
  2. Log into the Coveo Cloud V2 platform (see Logging into the Coveo Cloud V2 Platform).
  3. In your developer tools, typically under the Storage or Application tab, locate and inspect the https://platform.cloud.coveo.com cookie. In this cookie, the access_token field value is your Coveo Cloud V2 platform access token.

Use Postman to Create Your Organization

Using Postman, setup a request call with the following details. Plug in the organization name you want to use and add in the token you got from the step above. Voila.

POST https://platform.cloud.coveo.com/rest/organizations?name=<MyOrganizationDisplayName> HTTP/1.1
 
Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json
Authorization: Bearer <MyOAuth2Token>
