ICU Normalization Token Filter

Normalizes characters as explained here. It registers itself as the icu_normalizer token filter, which is available to all indices without any further configuration. The type of normalization can be specified with the name parameter, which accepts nfc, nfkc, and nfkc_cf (default).

You should probably prefer the Normalization character filter.

Here are two examples, the default usage and a customised token filter:

PUT icu_sample
{
  "settings": {
    "index": {
      "analysis": {
        "analyzer": {
          "nfkc_cf_normalized": { 
            "tokenizer": "icu_tokenizer",
            "filter": [
              "icu_normalizer"
            ]
          },
          "nfc_normalized": { 
            "tokenizer": "icu_tokenizer",
            "filter": [
              "nfc_normalizer"
            ]
          }
        },
        "filter": {
          "nfc_normalizer": {
            "type": "icu_normalizer",
            "name": "nfc"
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Uses the default nfkc_cf normalization.

Uses the customized nfc_normalizer token filter, which is set to use nfc normalization.
