Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8362) Add docValues support for TextField
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 20:28:13 GMT


Varun Thacker commented on SOLR-8362:

Another reason to add this support

Lots of people use a TextField which has a Keyword Tokenizer + Lowecase Filter . The reason
- You can search on the field in a case insensitive fasion
- You can facet on the field but the facet results preserve the casing as its a stored field
as well. 

"brand" could be such field - you want to search and facet on them. We can't use DocValues
in such a case also.

> At the last lucene/solr revolution, Toke asked a question about why TextField doesn't
support docValues.  The short answer is because no one ever added it, but the longer answer
was because we would have to think through carefully the _intent_ of supporting docValues
for  a "tokenized" field like TextField, and how to support various conflicting usecases where
they could be handy.
