Tokenizer and Filters Aliasing


(Alexandre) #1

I was wondering if aliasing was supported for tokenizers and
filters ?
If not is there any plan to support it ?

The idea is that my automated annotation based tool automagically
creates analyzers, tokenizers and filter definitions.
If it encounters a definition that was previously sent to server it
tries to create an alias for it rather than redefining the exact same
analyzer.

That works fine for analyzers but it seems tokenizers and filters dont
have that feature.

Thanks for your feedback.

Aliases, as you noted, are only supported for analyzers, not for tokenizers
or token filters...
