Subject Proposal: Not index blank fields in Solr connector
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 16:28:57 GMT
Hi folks,

We're considering, for MCF 2.0, having the Solr connector not index empty
fields -- just skip them entirely.  This is not backwards-compatible
behavior, for a number of reasons:

(1) If the field whose value is blank is marked as "required" in
solrschema.xml, Solr will reject the document, where before it would have
allowed it to be indexed;
(2) Queries which make a distinction between no field and an empty field
will no longer work the same way.

Can I request a show of hands (figuratively) of how many people this change
might affect?
