Subject Re: Do we really need to build all existing index data again after changing schema? [scottchu]
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 11:44:04 GMT
like alexandre already touched on, you technically *can* "keep existing
data and still apply new schema." you just can't expect index level changes
to be applied retroactively to the already existing index. the deeper your
changes to the schema, the deeper the incongruities between expectation and
reality when it comes to running your searches. but the existing data can
in fact continue onward w/o being reindexed at your own peril.
