Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-247) Allow facet.field=* to facet on all fields (without knowing what they are)
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2013 21:25:18 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-247:

I agree it's a terrible idea for anything production, but for discovery it could be nice.
I often throw "unknown" data into an index with a catch-all <dynamicField name="*" type="string"/>
kind of config, and then find myself specifying a lot of facet.field's to introspect what's
in the various fields. For pure dev purposes it'd be a nice shortcut. So for me it can live
as a newdev issue for still some time...
