Subject RE: Question about indexing PDFs
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2016 07:39:36 GMT
Hi Betsey,

I executed some examples in Solr 5.5 from apache Tika Data import handler . content/Text was
not store by default.
I can see PDF contents with documents when stored="true" enabled .

solr start -e dih

<field name="text" type="text_general" indexed="true" stored="true" multiValued="true"/>


    <dataSource type="BinFileDataSource" />
        <entity name="tika-test" processor="TikaEntityProcessor"
                url="${solr.install.dir}/example/exampledocs/solr-word.pdf" format="text">
                <field column="Author" name="author" meta="true"/>
                <field column="title" name="title" meta="true"/>
                <field column="text" name="text"/>

That is always a dangerous assumption. Are you sure you're searching on the proper field?
Are you sure it's indexed? Are you sure it's....

The schema browser I indicated above will give you some idea what's actually in the field.
You can not only see the fields Solr (actually Lucene) see in your index, but you can also
see what some of the terms are.

Adding &debug=query and looking at the parsed query will show you what fields are being
searched against. The most common causes of what you're describing are:

> not searching against the field you think you are. This
is very easy to do without knowing it.

> not actually having 'indexed="true" set in your schema

> not committing after inserting the doc
