Hi!

I'm working on increasing the relevance of product-search results on our website by importing synonyms into our system.
Therefore, I downloaded the synonym list from opentheasaurus.

What I'd like to do now is not to import all the synoyms (as they would increase the indexing time) but only want to import those where one of the words in a list of matching synonyms is also included in our database.

I therefore processed out product documents to get a word list and converted it to data. First question: Which type of data is it now? Text or polynominal?

Second question:
How can I now filter out those synonym-pairs where none of the included synonyms is also in the word list?

An example:
My list
Bike
Boat
Car

The synonym list from opentheasaurus
bike, bicycle
boat, motorboat, sailboat
airplane, plane

In the example above, the resulting data set should be:
bike, bicycle
boat, motorboat, sailboat

(as "airplane, plane" isn't in the wordlist)

I tried using loop through attributes - and values and several other combinations.

Is there even a simple method for that?

Thanks!

    Hi,

    sounds like you can use a Generate Attribute to generate new Attribute like "Contains Bike" or so and then join on this?

    Hi!

    Thanks!
    You mean like the following process?

    At the moment for example "cable" would also be found if the synonym is named "energy-cable" or whatever. (Please see the function in "generate attribute")
    Is there a way to only find those attributes that don't have any other letter at the beginning and the end of the loop_value (only space, comma or punctuation mark would be allowed; I guess using regex)?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    sure. I think contains actually takes regexes, even though it is not explicity documented.

    Hi Martin!

    I added a "split" operator into the loop so it can test against each attribute using an exact match comparison.

    How can I say euqal either attribute1 or attribute2 or attribut3, ...?
    The process tells me that "||" is only allowed for boolean or numerical attributes.

    Thanks,
    Steven

    Hi Martin!

    I matched making this process work but unfortunately it always gets stuck between loop 150 and 300.

    Do you have an idea to make this easier or to make it consume less memory?:
