Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-13205) StringIndexOutOfBoundsException in SolrQueryParserBase.getFieldQuery
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2019 13:49:00 GMT
Johannes Kloos created SOLR-13205:

             Summary: StringIndexOutOfBoundsException in SolrQueryParserBase.getFieldQuery
                 Key: SOLR-13205
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
          Components: search
    Affects Versions: master (9.0)
         Environment: h1. Steps to reproduce

* Use a Linux machine.
* Build commit {{ea2c8ba}} of Solr as described in the section below.
* Build the films collection as described below.
* Start the server using the command {{./bin/solr start -f -p 8983 -s /tmp/home}}
* Request the URL given in the bug description.

h1. Compiling the server

git clone
cd lucene-solr
git checkout ea2c8ba
ant compile
cd solr
ant server

h1. Building the collection and reproducing the bug

We followed [Exercise 2|]
from the [Solr Tutorial|].

mkdir -p /tmp/home
echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?><solr></solr>' > /tmp/home/solr.xml

In one terminal start a Solr instance in foreground:
./bin/solr start -f -p 8983 -s /tmp/home

In another terminal, create a collection of movies, with no shards and no replication, and
initialize it:

bin/solr create -c films
curl -X POST -H 'Content-type:application/json' --data-binary '{"add-field": {"name":"name",
"type":"text_general", "multiValued":false, "stored":true}}' http://localhost:8983/solr/films/schema
curl -X POST -H 'Content-type:application/json' --data-binary '{"add-copy-field" : {"source":"*","dest":"_text_"}}'
./bin/post -c films example/films/films.json
curl -v “URL_BUG”

Please check the issue description below to find the “URL_BUG” that will allow you to
reproduce the issue reported.

            Reporter: Johannes Kloos

Requesting the following URL causes Solr to return an HTTP 500 error response:


The error response seems to be caused by the following uncaught exception:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 0
at java.lang.String.charAt(
at org.apache.solr.parser.SolrQueryParserBase.getFieldQuery(
at org.apache.solr.parser.SolrQueryParserBase.handleBareTokenQuery(
at org.apache.solr.parser.QueryParser.Term(

at org.apache.solr.handler.component.SearchHandler.handleRequestBody(
at org.apache.solr.handler.RequestHandlerBase.handleRequest(

The “df” parameter means that we set the empty string as default field(!). Since we do
not give a field in the query, the default field is substituted in getFieldQuery. We then
check if the field starts with “_” by using charAt(0).

A trivial fix would be to replace field.charAt(0) == ‘_’ with field.startsWith(“_”).

To set up an environment to reproduce this bug, follow the description in the ‘Environment’
