I have a field that might take string or numeric value, naturally I would
want to order it numerically if the values turn out to be number.
I tried to map a multi_field with both string and float, but it would not
work if the value is a string. Is there a way to tell elasticsearch to
ignore indexing a sub-field (in this case, the float field) if the format
does not fit?
On the other hand, I know it has been asked before but didn't seem to have
a good answer, is there a better way to sort string value numerically? Is
there roadmap for this feature?
