Answer ID 7966   |   Last Review Date 12/18/2018

Can we use accents/special characters in aliases?


Site Configuration, File Manager, Wordlist files, Aliases.txt
Oracle B2C Service


Accented letters (or special characters) can be used in the aliases.txt file.

The aliases.txt file can be used to define business-specific synonyms to be used with all end-user searches performed on your answers. The aliases.txt file allows you to define a global list of synonyms to be applied to all your answers. The file contains no default alias terms. To use this capability, you must customize the file with the terms you want. To access the aliases.txt file, from the File Manager change the Switch To menu to be wordlist files and click the file name.
