Ability to disable or customize stemming

Watson Discovery uses stemming to identify valid matches. Based on our experience it appears that stemming is applied in both Natural Language Queries and also Discovery Language Queries. It seems to also enforced in phrase searching. This is usef...

Increase document size limit for WD

Currently maximum document size, which can be processed by WD for CP4D is 32Mb. It is very small size limit considering any document which may have embedded images can be much larger. Even WEX limits were higher (up to 128Mb for WEX AC). Please co...

Ability re-process documents without re-ingestion

Currently we need to re-ingest documents to update any enrichment. This is specifically not very practical when we have WKS model involved. If the model is refined & updated, we need to re-ingest the docs. This is very annoying for customers ...

Delete All Documents API

Right now if you want to delete all documents, you either need to delete the collection (which could mean code changes to point to a new ID), or you need to write a script to delete every document one by one which is time consuming.

Allow an optional "Callback URL" in "Add Document" Discovery API request

We, frequently, write services to poll Discovery for a document's status after we POST a document for ingestion. If, within the request body, we could include a callback URL for Discovery to asynchronously POST a completion message to, we could cu...

Smart Document Understanding - Option to choose the documents that I want to annotate

The SDU only presents 40 documents to annotate in the drop-down list and often, there are documents that we need to annotate and do not appear in the list due to this limitation. The suggestion is that instead of having a list of 40 documents to a...

Multiple SDU models per Collection

in my domain of business, clients put different kind and format of documents in the same collection. We need the possibility to have multiple SDU models in the same collection. Every SDU model get applied to a specific set of files identified by a...

Requesting to allow users to define their list of user_dictionary words for the purpose of Kuromoji’s tokenizer. I understand that WDS uses Kuromoji underneath for Japanese language. A key function of Kuromoji as the morphological analyzer for Jap...
