Increase number of synonyms limit for query expansion

Query expansion via synonyms is a very powerful yet easy to configure feature. However, the current limitation of 500 entries across all expanded_terms arrays is too low for most use cases. For enterprise corpora covering a multitude of topics, we...

Passages and relevancy training

Passages and relevancy training are very important features of WDS to provide short and accurate answers to questions. But as relevancy training works only at document level, and the ranking of documents and passages are different, the value of th...

Ability to Enrich Nested and Arrays of JSON

Data input often comes in more complicated forms than a flat JSON list, would be very useful for Discovery to be able to enrich this without customer pre-preprocessing.
