Subject Re: Showing facet values in alphabetical order

Are you showing the facets with &facet parameters in your request?

Then you can ask for the facets to be returned sorted by byte-order with 

Got nothing to do with your schema, let alone your DIH import 
configuration that you showed us. Just a matter of how you ask Solr for 

Byte order is not neccesarily exactly  'alphabetical' order, if your 
facets are not 7-bit-ascii and/or if they contain punctuation. If your 
facet values are just 7-bit ascii characters and spaces, it should 
basically be alphabetical order.

But that's all that Solr offers, as far as I know.
