How to highlight pre-defined terms in ElasticSearch?

(lingandcs) #1

I'm not sure if ElasticSearch can handle this, but it sounds a search engine related application. The requirement is:

Giving a company name (100k) list and millions of documents, highlight all hits in each document.

It's not like a typical search engine application, e.g. user inputs a keyword and search engine returns all hits and highlight it. I'm looking into ElasticSearch APIs and trying to figure out how to do it. Anybody has any suggestion? Thanks!

Sounds like highlight APIs can do something, my though is: merge all company names into a single search query and do the search. But this will give too much work load to search engine...
