Comparison between the Solr Wiki and the Solr Manual

This page is a collection of notable variances between the Solr Wiki and the Solr Reference Guide (henceforth referred to as the manual). The purpose is to ensure the consistency of information in both documents, and to give contributors that use both documents a place to make note of discrepancies between them. As both the Solr Wiki and the Solr Manual are subject to change according to releases of Solr, this page will perpetually be a work-in-progress.

Manual: CoreAmin API (2014-11-06)


Wiki: CoreQueryParameters (2013-06-13)
Manual: ??

It is unclear as to whether this page refers literally to the CoreAdmin, or uses the word "core" figuratively to mean "essential". Though the content of the page indicates that it is the latter, most of the page's elements seem as though they could be found more apparently on other pages; wt, for example, is also found on CommonQueryParameters, and NOW and TZ could both be used to populate a page about time-based params similar to Working With Dates in the manual.

Wiki: DataImportHandlerDeltaQueryViaFullImport (2011-07-20)
Manual: Uploading Structured Data Store Data with the Data Import Handler (2014-12-16)

This page appears to be an alternative method for handling delta imports and full imports other than the URL methods delta-import and full-import found in the manual. It is recommended that the writing of this page be cleaned up to more accurately convey its intent, specifically in the paragraphs between the code example and the Efficiency Aspect section. Lack of punctuation and unclear phrasings make the content difficult to understand.

Wiki: Deduplication (2012-02-29)
Manual: De-Duplication (2014-02-27)

The equivalent sections have slight differences in the order of content, but are otherwise identical. The wiki explains the concept in a manner that is more geared toward future implementation of possible methods, whereas the the manual's tone is more present and concrete.


Wiki: DeploymentofSolrCoreswithZookeeper (2010-03-01)
Manual: Nodes, Cores, Clusters and Leaders (2014-12-18)

Made note that this page refers to SOLR-1724 and not SolrCloud (CCT 2016-12-20)


Wiki: DIHCustomFunctions (2011-07-11)
Manual: Uploading Structured Data Store Data with the Data Import Handler

The evaluator function used in this wiki page may have been depreciated in favor of newer methods. This is based on the fact that no mention of evaluators of any kind are foudn in the manual, and that no information is on Web past 2011.


Wiki: DIHCustomTransformer (2012-10-02)
Manual: Uploading Structured Data Store Data with the Data Import Handler

This page is an extension of its counterpart in the manual. In fact, the manual links to the wiki in the Transformerssection.


Wiki: DIHQuickStart (2010-03-04 )
Manual: Uploading Structured Data Store Data with the Data Import Handler

This page can be seen as an extension of DataImportHandler. The Index data from multiple tables into Solr section could contain more updated information with regards to how to implement multiple tables.


Wiki: DIHTransformer(2009-12-12)
Manual: Transforming Result Documents (2014-06-08)

This wiki page is empty. It either pertains to the content in the above manual page, or the transformers section found in the Uploading Structured Data Store Data with the Data Import Handler page.

Manual: Spell Checking (2014-12-18)


Wiki: DisMax (2012-01-19)
Manual: The DisMax Query Parser (2014-12-18)

The DisMax wiki page is a more in-depth explanation about the origing of the DisMaxQParserPlugin, and its content can likely be added to the beginning of that page, as it is in the manual.


Wiki: DisMaxQParserPlugin (2012-05-04)
Manual: The DisMax Query Parser (2014-12-18)


Wiki: DisMaxRequestHandler (2010-07-30)
Manual: The DisMax Query Parser (2014-12-18)

This page is essentially a redirect to the previous two-DisMax and DisMaxQParserPlugin. It contains no additional information, and can be deleted without consequence.


Wiki: DistributeSearch (2014-04-28)
Manual: Distributed Search with Index Sharing (2014-08-29)


Wiki: DistributedSearchDesign (2009-09-20)
Manual: Distributed Search with Index Sharing

This wiki page is a conceptual listing for the implementation of the previous search parameter, which became obsolete when it was added to Solr.


Wiki: DocTransformers (2014-06-17)
Manual: Result Documents (2014-07-18)

This wiki is empty, other than the links to the manual page, and a note informing users that it is for the posting of tips and tricks related to Document Transformers (which no on has added as of yet).


Wiki: DocumentProcessing (2011-10-27)
Manual: Updating Parts of Documents (2014-12-04)

This is a repository wiki page which is an extension of TaskList, and both documents are essentially TODO lists that can be revisited and eliminated once suggestions are implemented.


Wiki: DocValues (2014-06-23)
Manual: DocValues(2014-12-12)

The DocValues wikii page identifies itself as a page to store tips, tricks, and advice (as intended), and all reference material has already been moved to the wiki.

Editing configuration files in the admin UI

Wiki: Editing configuration files in the admin UI(2014-06-24)
Manual: N/A

Wiki page contains a note that reads: This capability was removed before release for security reasons. If we bring it back, we can revert this edit.


Wiki: EmbeddedSolr (2009-09-20)
Manual: Using SolrJ (2014-12-18)

The wiki page references another wiki page SolrJ as a means of testing the implementation of an embedded SolrServer, and this is essentially reiterated on the SolrJ page in the manual.


Wiki: ExposedFaceting (2013-03-25)
Manual: N/A

Exposed Faceting was an experimental at the time of this page's creation. Notes on SOLR-2412 indicate that the contrib is unlikely to be implemented any time soon (as recent as 2014-11-18, according to comments posted by the page's author).

This processor was mentioned as being experimental some four years ago, and as of February of 2014 it was still being tested SOLR-1763


Wiki: FAQ (2014-10-1)
Manual: N/A

This page is exclusive to the wiki, and all mentions of an FAQ in the manual point here.


Wiki: DistributedSearch (2014-04-08)
Manual:[[|Distributed Search with Index Sharding]] (2014-08-29)

This wiki page redirects to Distributed Search, and is otherwise empty.


Wiki: FieldAliasesAndGlobsInParamssolr (2011-01-24)
Manual: The Extended DisMax Query Parser (2014-12-18)

The Wiki page for field aliasing has the tone of a brainstorming page, containing "if and when" terminology, and the date of the doc also points to it being outdated. The above manual page about the DisMax Query Parser indicates that field aliasing is possible using using per-field qf overrides.

Field Collapsing

Wiki: FieldCollapsing (2013-03-26)
Manual: Result Grouping (2014-12-12)

This wiki page is identical to its counterpart


Wiki: FieldCollapsingUncommitted (2010-09-16)
Manual: Collapse and Expand Results (2014-06-24)

The CollapsingQParser appears to have replaced the collapse component mentioned in this wiki page, though the content referencing the expand component is similar.

Wiki: FileBasedSpellChecker (2013-04-13)
Manual: Spell Checking (2014-12-18)


Wiki: Flare (2011-11-22)
Manual: N/A

Taken verbatim from this wiki page: Solr Flare has been deprecated and removed from Solr's repository. It was a Rails plugin that evolved into the popular Blacklight framework. The code has been exported and archived at


Wiki: FunctionQuery (2013-05-08)
Manual: Function Queries(2014-12-18)


Wiki: GettingStarted (2013-06-08)
Manual: Getting Start (2013-06-03)

The respective getting started pages are inherently different as they reference two different documents. Noteworthy is the fact that the wiki has been more recently updated than the manual, and the last section of the wiki, which cotains a title (Running the Example), but no content.


Wiki: GuessingFieldTypes (2014-04-19)
Manual: Schemaless Mode (2014-12-10)

This wiki page is empty, though it correctly points the user to the Schemaless Mode manual page, which indicates using the UpdateRequestProcessorChain to guess field types.


Wiki: GuiceRestlet (2013-08-07)
Manual: N/A

The wiki for this is a placeholder for an experimental component to likely be implemented in later versions SOLR-4818.


Wiki: HackingSolr (2012-06-05)
Manual: N/A (multiple)

This page covers varied topics, thus has no manual equivalent.

Wiki: HierarchicalFaceting (2014-04-28)
Manual: Faceting (2014-12-11)

The wiki page appears to be a collection of different methods related to the implementation of hierchical faceting, many of which were implemented with pivot faceting (covered in the manual).


Wiki: HighlightingParameters (2013-04-04)
Manual: Highlighting (2014-12-15)

Each of the listed items in this wiki page is identical to the items listed throughout the three separate sections of the manual equivalent (Standard, FastVector, and Postings)


Wiki: HowToCompileSolr (2014-07-29)
Manual: N/A

This wiki page details how to compile SolrJ with CygWin on Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is exclusive to the wiki.


Wiki: Hunspell (2012-04-29)
Manual: Filter Descriptions (2014-12-18)

This page introduces the Hunspell advanced spell checker. For its correlation to the manual, see the section below (HunspellStemFilterFactory)


Wiki: HunspellStemFilterFactory (2011-10-05)
Manual: Filter Descriptions (2014-12-18)


Wiki: IndexBasedSpellChecker (2009-09-20)
Manual: N/A

The page contains a one-sentence of the plugin and a TODO with no further content. It is likely outdated and can be removed.


Wiki: LukeRequestHandler (2012-01-05)
Manual: N/A

The LukeRequestHandler (redirected from the IndexInfoRequestHandler) may be misrepresented outside the wiki, as the external docs seem to point to the fact the handler is fluid in its development; thus, it is not included in the manual.s


Wiki: IndexingDates
Manual: Working With Dates (2014-12-18)

The wiki page for handling dates is over 5 years old. While some of the sytnax survived, it has likely changed enough over the years to be considered obsolete, or at least in need of revision.


Wiki: IndexPartitioning (2009-09-20)
Manual: Distributed Search with Index Sharding (2014-08-29)

The wiki page indicates in the first line that it is a brainstorming excercise, which doesn't describe any particular aspect of Solr. The word "partition" is equated to 'shards' in the manual, and each mention of it in conjunction with indexes can be seen as the culmination of this page.


Wiki: IntegratingSolr (2014-12-07)
Manual: Several (various)

Several different types of programming languages are covered on this page as a means of integrating Solr. Virtually all of the links are external.


Wiki: JapaneseLanguageSupport (2012-03-26)
Manual: N/A

This page notes the evenuality of containing Japanese language support in Solr 3.6 and 4.0. Seeing as how these versions have since been released, it should be updated with progress in Japanese language support.


Wiki: javabin (2013-05-11)
Manual: Updating Data with Index Handlers (2014-12-16)

The phrase 'javabin' in only mentioned once in the manual, in the context of the UpdateRequestHandler being capable of handling update requests. Contents of this wiki page are for earlier versions of javabin integration which are handled by ContentStreamLoader.


Wiki: JavaScript (2013-05-11)
Manual:[[|Using Javascript]] (2013-06-03)

The contents of this page are all external links to differenct clients and libraries. It can likely be integrated into the SolJSON wiki page.


Wiki: Join (2013-12-10)
Manual: Other Parsers (2014-10-29)

This wiki page is essentially an extension of the Join Query Parser section found in the above manual page, which refers readers back to the page.


Wiki: JsonPreAnalyzedParser (2013-12-10)
Manual: Working with External Files and Processes (2014-08-26)

In the section Pre-Analyzing a Field Type, the manual references this page as its resource for further information.


Wiki: UpdateJSON (2013-02-22)
Manual: Uploading Data with Index Handlers (2014-12-16)


Wiki: LanguageAnalysis (2014-12-18)
Manual: Language Analysis (2014-12-18) <<BR>01233>

The third paragraph indicates this wiki page as mostly obsolete, though the content is consistent with what is found in the manual.


Wiki: LanguageDetection (2013-07-02)
Manual: Detecting Languages During Indexing (2014-02-27)

Each of the listed langid parameters is identical in both documents, and they are essentially the same.


Wiki: LargeIndexes (2011-06-08)
Manual: N/A

This page is more an exposition on the handling of large indexes than a reference to a particular aspect of Solr.


Wiki: LBHttpSolrServer (2013-02-05)
Manual: Combining Distribution and Replication (2013-06-03)

The wiki page references the Load Balanced HtttpSolrServer as a solution for load-balancing, where the manual references HAProxy as a "good open source software load-balancer".


Wiki: LocalParams (2013-02-23)
Manual: Local Parameters in Queries (2013-06-03)

The content between these two pages is essentially identical.


Wiki: LocalSolr (2010-04-01)
Manual: Spatial Search (2014-11-24)

Wiki page redirects to SpatialSearch, which informs the reader that the most up-to-date information about Spatial Search is found in the above manual page.


Wiki: LoggingInDefaultJettySetup (2014-04-17)
Manual: Configuring Logging (2014-04-04)

This wiki page contains considerably more information about logging in Jetty, specifically the configuration of the file, than the manual, which reserves a section among others and provides a brief example.


Wiki: LogoContest (2009-09-20)
Manual: N/A

This page is exclusive to the wiki.


Wiki: LotsOfCores (2014-09-02)
Manual: Solr Cores and solr.xml (2013-07-23)

The manual covers more aspects of core discovery, since it will eventually supplant whichever methods are present in the wiki. The manual also explicates the use of SolrCloud, where the wiki page has a large disclaimer warning that the content of the page is not verified with SolrCloud setups. In short, the wiki contains a mixed bag of legacy, current, and future tactics, but the manual's page is about preparing for future iterations of Solr and its effect on the form of solr.xml.


Wiki: LukeRequestHandler (2012-01-05)
Manual: N/A


Wiki: MailEntityProcessor (2011-08-24)
Manual: N/A

This page is exclusive to the wiki.


Wiki: MakeSolrMoreSelfService (2011-11-23)
Manual: N/A-various

This page is a self-contained listing of methods to make Solr more "self-service". It covers multiple aspects, and can likely be updated to indicate which aspects have already been satisfied.


Wiki: MergingSolrIndexes (2013-08-29)
Manual: Merging Indexes (2014-02-25)
