Subject Configuration folder for the collection generated with <collectionname><id> instead of just <collectionname>
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 08:31:23 GMT
Hi all,

We are using Lucidworks Fusion on top of Solr and recently we’ve
encountered an unexpected behavior. We’ve created bash scripts which we use
to create collections in Solr using the Fusion API and upload the
collection configuration (with bash $ZKCLIENT -cmd upconfig -confdir $path
-confname $collection -z $HOST:$ZKPORT).

We had issues that the index fields of our custom configurations were not
available (ie. our custom field types and fields we’ve defined in
managed-schema). So we checked in Solr admin and found out that the
configuration folder for the collection was generated with
<collectionname><id> instead of just <collectionname> (eg.

Our collection configurations are under the one with the id in the end. So
the configuration set that was uploaded by our scripts was never used and
therefore the index fields were not existing. Also, we did not manage to
discover a pattern (or cause) for when does this happen (because sometimes
the issue does not occur and sometimes it does and to us it seems pretty

Furthermore, in the screenshot above, it’s possible to see the same thing
happened with system_metrics collection configs, which we do not create or
modify with our scripts. Therefore, the scripts should not be the cause of
this behavior.

What we are trying to determine is if this issue is coming from Fusion,
Solr or Zookeeper. Does someone know in which case the collection
configuration folder is generated with the id in the end and how to avoid
it? Thank you!
