  • Hi ,

    I have below questions on FAST search keywords:

    1. Will synonyms added while adding keyword will filter all search result or only it is used for showing definition and best bet?

    2. What is mean by one way synonym. why definition and best bet wont show for them?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Satish,

    You might would like to read the article below:



    Keywords provide definitions for common terms that are used within your organization. Each keyword entry can also be associated with synonyms. If a term in a search query is defined with synonyms, the synonymous terms will be added to the query.

    When users search for the keyword, results from all synonyms will also be displayed in the search result. When users search for a two-way synonym, results from the synonym will be displayed in addition to the results from the keyword and all other synonyms. When users search for a one way synonym, only results from the synonym will be displayed.
