Subject Re: Make search on the particular field to be case sensitive
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2017 11:24:49 GMT
Behavior of the field values is defined by fieldType analyzer declaration.

If you look at the managed-schema;

You will find fieldType declarations like:

<fieldType name="text_en" class="solr.TextField" positionIncrementGap="100">
> <analyzer type="index"> <tokenizer class="solr.StandardTokenizerFactory"/>
> <filter class="solr.StopFilterFactory" words="lang/stopwords_en.txt"
> ignoreCase="true"/> <filter class="solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory"/> <filter
> class="solr.EnglishPossessiveFilterFactory"/> <filter class=
> "solr.KeywordMarkerFilterFactory" protected="protwords.txt"/> <filter
> class="solr.PorterStemFilterFactory"/> </analyzer> <analyzer type="query">
> <tokenizer class="solr.StandardTokenizerFactory"/> <filter class=
> "solr.SynonymGraphFilterFactory" expand="true" ignoreCase="true" synonyms=
> "synonyms.txt"/> <filter class="solr.StopFilterFactory" words=
> "lang/stopwords_en.txt" ignoreCase="true"/> <filter class=
> "solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory"/> <filter class=
> "solr.EnglishPossessiveFilterFactory"/> <filter class=
> "solr.KeywordMarkerFilterFactory" protected="protwords.txt"/> <filter
> class="solr.PorterStemFilterFactory"/> </analyzer> </fieldType>

In you case fieldType is "string". *You need to write analyzer chain for
the same fieldType and don't include:*
 <filter class="solr.LowerCaseFilterFactory"/>

LowerCaseFilterFactory is responsible lowercase the token coming in query
and while indexing.

Something like this will work for you:

<fieldType name="string" class="solr.StrField" sortMissingLast="true"
<analyzer> <tokenizer class="solr.KeywordTokenizerFactory"/> </analyzer>

I listed "KeywordTokenizerFactory" considering this is string, not text.
