Subject Accessing multiValued field from within custom function
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2019 17:18:18 GMT

I am using SOLR 7.5 in the cloud mode.
I want to create a custom function similar to 'strdist' that works on
multivalued fields (multiValued=true) and finds the highest matching score.
Yes, I know the potential performance issues, but in my usecase this would
bring a huge benefit.

There is not much information on how to work with multiValued fields, but I
have found a piece of code that might be useful. It's how SOLR standard
functions are registered:

The interesting part for me starts in line 424, when the 'field' function
is registered.
It optionally accepts a multivalue field for min/max calculation.
If the 2nd argument is 'min' or 'max' it tries to resolve the field as
  SchemaField f = fp.getReq().getSchema().getField(fieldName);

Now the questions are:
1. Is this the path I should follow? If not - are there any other ways?
2. How to retrieve all the actual *String *or *Text *values from a
multivalue field, not just a single value? Some kind of a table or set of
values. How?
3. Does cloud mode change anything here? In my case the whole index is on a
single machine, but there are several replicas.

Best regards,
Dariusz Wojtas
