List Synonym Maps (Azure Cognitive Search REST API)


The List Synonym Maps operation returns a list of the synonym maps in your Azure Cognitive Search service.

GET https://[service name][api-version]  
api-key: [admin key]  

The api-version is required. The current version is 2019-05-06. See API versions in Azure Cognitive Search for details.

Request Headers

The following list describes the required and optional request headers.

Request Header Description
Content-Type: Required. Set this to application/json
api-key: Required. The api-key is used to authenticate the request to your Search service. It is a string value, unique to your service. The List Synonym Maps request must include an api-key header set to your admin key (as opposed to a query key).

You will also need the service name to construct the request URL. You can get both the service name and api-key from your service dashboard in the Azure portal. See Create an Azure Cognitive Search service in the portal for page navigation help.


For a successful request: 200 OK. Here is an example response body:

      "value" : [  
          "name": "synonymmap1",  
          "format": "solr",  
          ... other synonym map properties  

You can filter the response down to just the properties you're interested in. For example, if you want only a list of synonym map names, use the OData select query option:

GET https://[service name][api-version]&$select=name
api-key: [admin key]  

In this case, the response from the above example would appear as follows:

      "value" : [ { "name": "synonymmap1" }, ... ]
