Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-6478) need docs / tests of the "rules" as far as collection names go
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 12:44:51 GMT


Grant Ingersoll commented on SOLR-6478:

I suspect ome of the URLs, etc. get a little wonky when you allow things like spaces, etc.
in the names.  Not sure if we should allow them or not.

> historically, the rules for "core" names have been vague but implicitly defined based
on the rule that it had to be a valid directory path name - but i don't know that we've ever
documented anywhere what the rules are for a "collection" name when dealing with the Collections
> I haven't had a chance to try this, but i suspect that using the Collections API you
can create any collection name you want, and the zk/clusterstate.json data will all be fine,
and you'll then be able to request anything you want from that collection as long as you properly
URL escape it in your request URLs ... but we should have a test that tries to do this, and
document any actual limitations that pop up and/or fix those limitations so we really can
have arbitrary collection names.
