Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8998) JSON Facet API child roll-ups
Date Fri, 04 May 2018 15:06:00 GMT


Cassandra Targett commented on SOLR-8998:

[~mkhludnev], sorry for the delay taking a look at this. Just to make sure I understand what
you asked me to look at...Some documentation was done with the code changes last week, but
then there are some additional doc changes that are proposed in the {{SOLR-8998-doc.patch}},
is that correct?

I haven't reviewed in much depth yet, but one thing that jumped out at me right away is if
you look at the BlockJoin Faceting page as it's built (
there are two warnings near the top of the page. The one that was added with this issue says
the functionality is deprecated, but the next one that's been there for a while says it's
experimental. Those statements on the status conflict, I think - "experimental" would indicate
to me that future development is likely, but "deprecated" says no more development should
be expected. I think we could merge those statements with something like:

This functionality is considered deprecated. Users are encouraged to use uniqueBlock(_root_)
aggregation under terms facet in JSON Facet API.

If this component is used, it must be explicitly enabled for a request handler in solrconfig.xml,
in the same way as any other search component.

Does that seem reasonable and an accurate reflection of the status of {{BlockJoinFacetComponent}}?

> The JSON Facet API currently has the ability to map between parents and children ( see )
> This issue is about adding a true rollup ability where parents would take on derived
values from their children.  The most important part (and the most difficult part) will be
the external API.
> [~mkhludnev] says

> The bottom line is to introduce {{uniqueBlock(\_root_)}} aggregation, which is supposed
to be faster than {{unique(\_root_)}} and purposed for blocked index only. For now it it supports
singlevalue string fields, docValues usually make sense.
