Sorting requirements


(Wes Plunk) #1

What's required on a field to make it sortable?

What's optional on a field when you want it sortable that might affect
how sorting works?

Every* non analyzed* type/field is sortable. Object comparison is used I
guess (date, long, string, int etc)
Every analyzed field can be sorted by _score because it's non sense to
sort an analyzed field : it has been split into tokens during analysis.
If you absolutly need an analyzed field to be sorted you can use *
multi-field*. It will store both analysed and non analysed representations
of the field. You'll then be able to sort by the non
analyzed representation.

Good luck,
