The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.





Required. A string representing the key of the dictionary entry, that is, the entry string itself that must match text in the processed item.


Optional. A string representing a value that is associated with a dictionary entry. In the case of property extraction, this is the value that is added to the target crawled property if the value of key match the item.

Parent Elements




A list of entry elements for the dictionary.

The dictionary matching is case-sensitive. This means that the casing of the words in the dictionary must match the casing of the words in the items.

The following example defines a property extraction dictionary that extracts terms related to wine terminology. To make the extractor case-insensitive, add all case variations to the dictionary.

  <entry key="Wine" value="wine" />
  <entry key="wine" value="wine" />
  <entry key="red wine" value="red wine" />
  <entry key="Red wine" value="red wine" />
  <entry key="white wine" value="white wine" />
  <entry key="White wine" value="white wine" />
  <entry key="Chardonnay" value="chardonnay" />
  <entry key="chardonnay" value="chardonnay" />

The associated property extractor may extract these wine-related terms to a new crawled property. The matching will handle different casing of the terms, and normalize the casing in the resulting crawled property.
