Subject Re: Month facet - possible bucket values are Jan, Feb, Mar,…. Nov, Dec
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:15:45 GMT
Extending on Erik’s proposal with facet.query, you could of course develop a custom Function
which takes a date field as input and returns the month number between 1-12.

When used in a facet you would need to select only one month value at a time, and frange QParser
could be used for that. It would look something like:
&facet.query={!frange l=1 u=1 key=Jan}month(cdate)
&facet.query={!frange l=2 u=2 key=Feb}month(cdate)
&facet.query={!frange l=3 u=3 key=Mar}month(cdate)

Have not tested this particular combination of facet.query, frange parser and function, but
it could work?
