Subject Solr filter query on STRING field [Was:Re: solr filter query on text field]
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 08:59:30 GMT

I'm having troubles with the filter query on a multiple string field,
specifically with a space between words. Looking at the histogram and
values using Solr UI it correctly shows that the indexing stores the
string "Key case" as it should. However the following filter queries:

fq=sm_field_tags:Key case      //doesn't work
fq=sm_field_tags:Key+case      //doesn't work
fq=sm_field_tags:Key*             //does work
fq=sm_field_tags:Key?case     //does work

Debug shows (for the first case):
"filter_queries":["sm_field_tags:Key case"],
"parsed_filter_queries":["sm_field_tags:Key id:case"]

Why does it parse to id: case ? Solr version is 7.4.0

Many thanks
