Thanks Jeff. TermsQueryParser worked for me. 

Thanks & Regards,

Subject: Re: Passing Ids in query takes more time

An ID lookup is a very simple and fast query, for one ID. Or’ing a lookup for 80k ids though
is basically 80k searches as far as Solr is concerned, so it’s not altogether surprising
that it takes a while. Your complaint seems to be that the query planner doesn’t know in
advance that <other criteria> should be run first, and then the id selection applied
to the reduced set.

So, I can think of a few things for you to look at, in no particular order:

1. TermsQueryParser is designed for lists of terms, you might get better results from that:

2. If your <other criteria> is the real discriminating factor in your search, you could
just search for <other critera> and then apply your ID list as a PostFilter:
I guess that’d look something like &fq={!terms f=<somefield> v="<id list”
cache=false cost=150}. You’d want cache=false because there’s not much sense caching an
id list unless that id list is usually the same, and the cost >= 100 should qualify it
as a post filter, which only operates on an already-found result set instead of the full index.
(Note: I haven’t confirmed that the Terms query parser supports post filtering.)

3. I’m not really aware of any storage engine that’ll love doing a filter on 80k ids at
once, but a key-value store like Cassandra might work out better for that.

4. There is a thing called a JoinQParserPlugin (
that can join to another collection ( But
I’ve never used it, and there are some significant restrictions.

250 records with same set of fields.
