Searches a given index for the reference entries matching the data you input.

tSynonymSearch reads input data and searches for reference entries defined in a given synonym index. If this component finds matched entries in the synonym index, it outputs them along with the corresponding input data and the relative matching details.

For further information about how to create a synonym index and define the reference entries, see tSynonymOutput.

For further information about how to access and manage the words and the reference entries (documents) of an existing synonym index using the synonym index editor, see Using the synonym index editor.

For further information about available synonym indexes, see Data synonym dictionaries.

In local mode, Apache Spark 2.4.0 and later versions are supported.

Information noteNote: If your indexes were created with Talend Studio 7.2 or earlier, you need to update them. The location of the migration procedure depends on the Talend Studio installation:
  • With the installer: /addons/scripts/Lucene_Migration_Tool/
  • With no installer: in the license email, click the link in Migration tool for Lucene Indexes from version 4 to version 8.

This component is not shipped with your Talend Studio by default. You need to install it using the Feature Manager. For more information, see Installing features using the Feature Manager.

For more technologies supported by Talend, see Talend components.
