Subject Re: Query in Solr plugin across shards
Date Mon, 23 Mar 2015 18:17:05 GMT

It is a fairly large ACL, so I am hoping to avoid any sort of application
redirect. That is sort of the problem we are trying to solve actually. Our
list was getting too large and we were maxing out maxBooleanQueries.

And I don't know which shard the user document is located on, just its
unique key. Although I suppose we could put all user objects on a single
shard. Not an ideal solution though.

I did see an option of using SolrJ CloudServer from within a plugin, but
that didn't seem very desirable to me.
