why would you need to reindex all the users documents everynight? is the score affected by
the number of documents per user? 

Also for scores, you might be able to use in-place updates:

so no need to reindex all the document.

my index is basically a list of documents of users. so i could say i got a 
couple of millions of documents per user.

I need to produce a score that is unrelated with search term (something like 
“give me documents that are the most important to user”). I would 
search for documents of a user without specifying a particular term. Documents 
that are the most important for a user are calculated with strategy based 
on particular text analysis (we still do not have a strategy).

I evaluated the idea of storing a score for each document based on an external 
scoring strategy (a job that reindex each user’s document every night?), but 
i do not know how could scale up (more user with many documents could make this 
strategy problematic in the long time), so the idea was to be able
to calculate this scoring (or other scoring strategy) trying to follow some 
best-practice (and as i can see using CustomScoreQuery is the most preferred 

I was not able to try a solution because of Lucene8 missing CustomScoreQuery.
I made something very basic using ValueSourceParser (but is this a good
