Synonym Expansion RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

           I’m using search.asmx to fetch results from FAST backend using Fast Search for sharepoint 2010. In the queryXml I am not passing any synonyms but at the backend query synonyms are appending by default. Can anyone tell me how to disable synonym expansion?

    Thanks in advance…..

  • Do you want to remove synonym expansion completely or from a specific query?

    If you want to remove it completely you can modify the FastSearchSearchSettingGroup, you will need the guid from SP.

    1) Issue a $ssg = Get-FASTSearchSearchSettingGroup  <GUID>

    2) You can remove the group entirely via Remove-FASTSearchSearchSettingGroup $ssg

    or you can iterate through the keywords of the $ssg.Keywords.GetKeyword($keyword)  and remove each one.

  • Thanks for your reply....

    But I don't want to delete keywords from the searchsettinggroup, because in my custom code i will be accessing those synonyms. So I just want to stop default synonym expansion at the back end when using search.asmx to fetch the results with FQL query.
