Explain Analyzeedit

If you want to get more advanced details, set explain to true (defaults to false). It will output all token attributes for each token. You can filter token attributes you want to output by setting attributes option.

Note

The format of the additional detail information is labelled as experimental in Lucene and it may change in the future.

GET _analyze
{
  "tokenizer" : "standard",
  "filter" : ["snowball"],
  "text" : "detailed output",
  "explain" : true,
  "attributes" : ["keyword"] 
}

Set "keyword" to output "keyword" attribute only

The request returns the following result:

{
  "detail" : {
    "custom_analyzer" : true,
    "charfilters" : [ ],
    "tokenizer" : {
      "name" : "standard",
      "tokens" : [ {
        "token" : "detailed",
        "start_offset" : 0,
        "end_offset" : 8,
        "type" : "<ALPHANUM>",
        "position" : 0
      }, {
        "token" : "output",
        "start_offset" : 9,
        "end_offset" : 15,
        "type" : "<ALPHANUM>",
        "position" : 1
      } ]
    },
    "tokenfilters" : [ {
      "name" : "snowball",
      "tokens" : [ {
        "token" : "detail",
        "start_offset" : 0,
        "end_offset" : 8,
        "type" : "<ALPHANUM>",
        "position" : 0,
        "keyword" : false 
      }, {
        "token" : "output",
        "start_offset" : 9,
        "end_offset" : 15,
        "type" : "<ALPHANUM>",
        "position" : 1,
        "keyword" : false 
      } ]
    } ]
  }
}

Output only "keyword" attribute, since specify "attributes" in the request.
