Component Explanation:

Field Name



Required. Name of the field stored and referred in Solr.


Required. The data type of the field defined in the configuration. For example, data type i.e ‘Boolean’, ‘int’, ‘date’ etc.


Optional. If indexed=True, the value of the field can be used in queries to retrieve matching documents. If indexed=False will make the field only stored but can’t be queried with.


Optional. If stored=true, the actual value of the field can be retrieved by queries (to tell Solr to store the original text in the index somewhere). If stored=false will make the field only indexed and can’t be retrieved in output.


Optional. If true, indicates that a single document might contain multiple values for this field type.

For example :

  • If stored=true and indexed=false: field isn’t searched, but need to be displayed in the search results.

  • If stored=true and indexed=true: field should be searchable and displayed in the search results.
