Replace analyzer on _all field

Hi,

I have a lot of data in my ES cluster. I'm using the _all field for general
search in my documents, but I recently found out that the standard analyzer
doesn't tokenize words with dots inside (ex: www.google.com - not found
when searching for "google").

So I want to replace the standard analyzer with the simple analyzer for the
_all field.

How do I do that? Please let me know all the steps - replacing,
re-indexing, etc.

Thanks,
Lasse

First you should not use _all but prefer copy_to feature which gives more flexibility. See: http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/mapping-core-types.html#copy-to

That said, changing an analyzer one by another requires to reindex your documents.
So create a new index (or drop the old one and create it again) with new settings/mappings.
Reindex.

Hi,

The copy_to feature looks nice, but for now I'm happy using the _all
feature.

However I don't think my question was fully answered. When creating the new
index, how do I change the _all analyzer? Are you saying that I need to
change the analyzer on each of the fields I've enabled _all on?

Thanks again,
Lasse

Lasse,

feature.

Glad you're happy with the _all feature.

new index, how do I change the _all analyzer? Are you saying that I need to
change the analyzer on each of the fields I've enabled _all on?

Ok, so not so happy after all! :slight_smile:

This link
http://elasticsearch-users.115913.n3.nabble.com/Specifying-analyzer-for-all-field-td3851732.html
contains a good description of the _all field. I admit that it's also
confusing to me. But I always now disable the _all field. Then:

  1. For a general directory query application, I lock down Elasticsearch to
    disable the _all field, prevent unmapped fields from being added, prevent
    unmapped types from being added, and prevent indexes from being
    automatically created with the addition of the first document.

  2. For processing logs using the ELK stack, I disable the _all field and
    specify the use of the message field as the default. Then all of my
    logstash configurations use the message field but do not modify it. Then I
    create the mapping I wish for the message field and all is well (no pun
    intended!).

Hi,

It's still not 100% clear to me how to replace the _all analyzer from the
standard analyzer to the simple analyzer. In the link you wrote I see this:

curl -X PUT "localhost:9200/indexName" -d '{ "settings" : { "index" : {
"number_of_shards" : 2, "number_of_replicas" : 1 },
"analysis" : {"analyzer":{"my_analyzer" : {
"tokenizer" : "keyword" }}}
}}'

But can anybody let me know exactly how to change the _all analyzer from
standard to simple?

Is it like this?

curl -X PUT "localhost:9200/indexName" -d '{ "settings" : { "index" : {
"number_of_shards" : 2, "number_of_replicas" : 1 },
"analysis" : {"analyzer":{"simple" }}
}}'

Thanks!
