Custom Analyzeredit

An analyzer of type custom that allows to combine a Tokenizer with zero or more Token Filters, and zero or more Char Filters. The custom analyzer accepts a logical/registered name of the tokenizer to use, and a list of logical/registered names of token filters. The name of the custom analyzer must not start with "_".

The following are settings that can be set for a custom analyzer type:
