Subject RE: Curator UI editing metadata in solr
Date Tue, 17 Jun 2014 00:58:51 GMT
I’ve tried it both ways.  Doesn’t seem to make a difference.

I’ve got to things that aren’t working right, and they are probably related to my problems:

1.       Only the built in product fields, listed below, are displayed in the curator UI.
 I believe that previously the actual metadata was displayed but I can’t determine what
I changed to cause this to happen.  When I query via the solr admin UI or curl I see that
both the built-in product fields and the custom policy driven metadata fields are being stored
into solr.

·         ProductStructure

·         ProductTransferStatus

·         ProductName

·         ProductRootReference

·         ProductMimeType

·         ProductOrigReferences

·         ProductId

·         ProductFileSize

·         ProductDataStoreReferences

2.       If I edit these fields they changes are not saved.  No exceptions that I can find
in the curator log or the file manager log.  When I step through the code with the debugger
I don’t see the metadata fields coming back from the call to the filemanager in MetadataResource.getCatalogMetadata.
I just see the product level fields listed above.  When I make the same call that the XmlRpcFileManager
makes to SolrCatalog.getMetadata in a standalone junit test the full metadata fields are returned.

In order to get the saving into solr working I needed to add the following processor to the
default updateRequestProcessorChain to stop the _version_ field from being saved because solr
was throwing an exception on the set to null for _version_.  Is this a problem you’ve seen
before and have you fixed it some other way.

<updateRequestProcessorChain default="true" name="lucid-update-chain">
    <processor class="solr.IgnoreFieldUpdateProcessorFactory">
      <str name="fieldName">_version_</str>

not sure if the /collection1 is required as this references the core and not the endpoint
that the server can be reached on.
Can you please try dropping this?

Had already done that as shown below but the updates are silently failing.   If you say it
works then we probably have something else misconfigured, e.g., something in the solr schema
or the policy files.  Will continue debugging just wanted to make sure this wasn't a known

In file manager properties:

in curator.xml
<Parameter name="org.apache.oodt.cas.curator.catalogFactoryClass"
<Parameter name="org.apache.oodt.cas.curator.catalog.solr.url"

Hi Mike,

Currently the Curator has a customized implementation of the File Manager Catalog Interface
that is a derivative of the LuceneCatalog, but with write back capabilities. We would really
like this to be updated to take *any* catalog, and I think there is an open JIRA ticket for


Ah, I see it's been resolved. So looks like you can swap the catalog out by changing:


In the WEB-INF/web.xml and/or the META-INF/context.xml file in your deployment.
