Subject Re: solr facet fields doesn't honor fq
Date Sun, 08 Jul 2012 16:26:46 GMT
Solr faceting only counts documents that satisfy the query. Think of it
as assembling a list of all possible values for a field and then adding
1 for each value found in each document that satisfies the overall
query (including the filter query). So you can get counts of 0, that's
expected. Adding mincount=1 will keep these from being returned.

I suspect that your query is not finding the documents you think it is or your
filter query is not parsed as you expect. If you add &debugQuery=on you'll
see the parsed form of both. In particular, look for your complex fq to be
broken up and distributed with some parts against your portal_uuid and
some against the default search field. In particular, '+' and '-' are
operators and the top-level parsers may be splitting these up. Quoting or
parenthesizing may help.
