             Summary: Add multi valued field support to index sorting
                 Key: LUCENE-7537
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-7537
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core/index
            Reporter: Ferenczi Jim


Today index sorting can be done on single valued field through the NumericDocValues (for numerics)
and SortedDocValues (for strings).
I'd like to add the ability to sort on multi valued fields. Since index sorting does not accept
custom comparator we could just take the minimum value of each document for an ascending sort
and the maximum value for a descending sort.
This way we could handle all cases instead of throwing an exception during a merge when we
encounter a multi valued DVs.
