No mentions in entity list

Joe Jan 24, 2017 04:37PM EST

When I post document text I get a list of extracted entities as I expect, but none of the entities have a mentions array (as shown in your docs). Shouldn't each entity have 1 or more mentions with offsets into the doc where it was found?

Or am I misunderstanding what a "mention" is? I assumed it was an instance of an entity found in the text.

Can you verify that you have entity mentions enabled by for the configuration that you’re using by going to More > ‘Configuration settings’ and checking the ‘Mentions’ checkbox under the ‘Detailed:’ section?

To get entity mentions you will have to choose ‘Detailed Reports’ > ‘Entities’ as the reporting type for your results. The entity results sheet will have a ‘Mentions’ column that contains the entity mention highlighted in the source text.

Please let us know if this addresses your issue. Thanks.

Thanks Ethan. Didn't realize mentions was off by default. Have it working now.
