Need some n00b help: how do I install and set up synonyms file?

Hi all,
I'm new to using ES, but have so far found the process quite intuitive.
I've installed ES, set up an index, indexed a bunch of JSON documents, and
I can search them. Hooray!
However, I want to start using synonyms for a few queries. I'd like to do
this at query time using a synonym file. How can I install the synonym file
and have ES read it?
I'm using elasticsearch-1.4.1 on Mac OSX locally.

I've read through the docs
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-update-settings.html but
I still don't understand what to do because I'm still not seeing queries
that use the synonym I've defined.

POST /test/_settings
{
"index" : {
"analysis" : {
"analyzer" : {
"synonym" : {
"tokenizer" : "whitespace",
"filter" : ["synonym"]
}
},
"filter" : {
"synonym" : {
"type" : "synonym",
"synonyms_path" : "analysis/synonym.txt"
}
}
}
}
}

My synonym file has one line:

"clementine => clementine,mandarin,orange,citrus"

When I search for "Clementine" on my index I get 3 results, searching for
"Orange" gets me 66.

Thanks,
JR

Also, I tried this:

curl -XPUT 'localhost:9200/test/_settings' -d '

{

"index" : {
    "analysis" : {
        "analyzer" : {
            "synonym" : {
                "tokenizer" : "whitespace",
                "filter" : ["synonym"]
            }
        },
        "filter" : {
            "synonym" : {
                "type" : "synonym",
                "synonyms_path" : "analysis/synonym.txt"
            }
        }
    }
}

}'

Which gives the response : {"acknowledged":true} , but it still didn't
change the outcome when querying

The path needs to be relative to the config home for ES.

Take a look at
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-dir-layout.html#default-paths
for where that would be on your installation.

Thanks Mark,
I believe that I have done that (but perhaps not)

My file is located at

/Users/jrubinstein/dev/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-1.4.1/config/analysis

the YML files are in the 'config' directory.

Hello,

i guess you should re-index your data because you have changed the mapping,
and check if this analysis is run on your query AND on your indexed data.

I hope this helps you out,
TI
