Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-6074) Field names with colons doesn't work on the query screen on the web UI
Date Sat, 17 May 2014 00:05:00 GMT


Ahmet Arslan commented on SOLR-6074:

bq.Perhaps this JIRA should result in an updated documentation on supported field name recommendation?
+1 This is really needed. Please see this :

>                 Key: SOLR-6074
>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: web gui
>    Affects Versions: 4.4
>         Environment: linux debian testing / LL(ighthttpd)MP stack with drupal as the
web frontend
>            Reporter: Ariel Barreiro
>            Priority: Minor
> I was looking into a search not working from the frontend and I wanted to check on how
the data was inserted. I was unable to run any proper query that provides useful results other
than *:*.
> Even more, when I followed the links from the schema browser from the Top Results for
the field I was interested in querying, I was redirected to the query and again no results
although there's obviously some because they appear as top results on the search page.
> By speaking with steffkes in #irc, he pointed out that the field name in question had
a colon in its name, like:
> "fieldname:name"
> So the search ended up being
> q=fieldname:name:DATA
> He suggested to escape the colon as fieldname\:name, but that made no difference.
> In the end, there was a setting in the drupal plugin I am using (
that mentioned about cleaning the field ids to remove that colon in the field name, which
I tried, and then I coiuld properly use the web ui to query results. New field name is fieldname$name.
> I quote a bit of the README from that module related to this:
> "This will change the Solr field names used for all
>   fields whose Search API identifiers contain a colon (i.e., all nested fields)
>   to support some advanced functionality, like sorting by distance, for which
>   Solr is buggy when using field names with colons.
