Subject Specifying dynamic field type without polluting actual field names with type indicators
Date Tue, 17 May 2016 15:05:34 GMT
Hi All,

By default Solr allows you to define the type of a dynamic field by
appending a post-fix to the name itself. E.g. creating a color_s field
instructs Solr to create a string field. My understanding is that if we do
this, all queries must refer the post-fixed field name as well. So
instead of a query like color:"red", we will have to write something like
color_s:"red" -- and so on for other field types as well.

I am wondering if it is possible to specify the data type used for a field
in Solr 6.0.0, without having to modify the field name. (Or at least in a
way that would allow us to use the original field name) Do you have any
idea, how to achieve this? I am fine, if we have to specify the field type
during the insertion of a document, however, I do not want to keep using
post-fixes while running queries...
