A synonym query returns results which are conceptually similar to the terms in a Query action Text parameter, and conceptually similar to the synonyms that are available for the Text terms.
You can set up synonym searching by using one of the following methods:
Enable synonym searches in IDOL Server. HPE recommends this method if you require synonym matching for approximately 100 terms. The synonym lists that this method uses can contain terms and phrases.
Set up an additional Synonym IDOL Server in which each documents is a synonym list. HPE recommends this method if you require synonym matching for a much larger number of terms (several hundred or more).
The synonym lists that this method uses can contain only terms, not phrases.
Refer to the IDOL Server Administration Guide for more information.
