Subject Re: Mapping fields from Wiki to Solr
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:50:59 GMT
Hi Kambiz,

A great way to debug what fields are getting through with what names is to
index with Solr, but to look at the [INFO] messages in the solr log.  Every
document that is indexed includes a full URL which has the fields listed as
arguments.  This will help you figure out whether any metadata is making it
through, and what it is called, without needing to search the index.  If
you remove all field mappings in Solr and on the Tika extractor, and try
indexing a small number of documents, it will be very obvious what metadata
fields are in fact being sent downstream by the repository connector.

It's also not clear whether you are using the web connector to crawl your
wiki site, or the wiki connector.  If it's the wiki connector, it only
supports the following:

                if (comment != null)
                if (author != null)
                if (title != null)
                if (lastModified != null)


Anything else that you want to support, you should create a ticket for.
