Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1695) Missleading error message when adding docs with missing/multiple value(s) for uniqueKey field
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 20:19:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1695?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12835381#action_12835381
] 

Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-1695:
------------------------------------

bq. ...it doesn't require "id" but it does declare "id" as the uniqueKey field ... even if
it's allowing dups shouldn't it ensure that the docs has 1 and only one value for the uniqueKey
field?

That depends... it makes sense for "normal" documents, but I've seen people that add a few
auxillary documents to their index that used different fields, including the id field.  But
it's not like you gain greater power by allowing that - those usecases could be covered by
forcing the user to come up with a uniqueKey value too... it would just be a little more work.

> Sometimes users don't seem to notice/understand the <uniqueKey/> declaration in
the example schema, and the error message they get if their documents don't include that field
is confusing...
> {code}
> org.apache.solr.common.SolrException: Document [null] missing required field: id
> {code}
> ...because they get an almost identical error even if they remove {{required=true}} from
{{<field name="id" />}} in their schema.xml file.
> We should improve the error message so it's clear when a Document is missing the "uniqueKeyField"
(not just a "required" field) so they know the terminology to look for in diagnosing the problem.
