POST _analyze
  "analyzer": "whitespace",
  "text": "The 2 QUICK Brown-Foxes jumped over the lazy dog's bone."

If you need to customize the whitespace analyzer then you need to recreate it as a custom analyzer and modify it, usually by adding token filters. This would recreate the built-in whitespace analyzer and you can use it as a starting point for further customization:

PUT /whitespace_example
  "settings": {
    "analysis": {
      "analyzer": {
        "rebuilt_whitespace": {
          "tokenizer": "whitespace",
          "filter": [         

You’d add any token filters here.
