Hi Emir, Thanks for confirming that strField is not considered / available for in place updates.
As per documentation, it says... *An atomic update operation is performed using this approach only when the fields to be updated meet these three conditions: are non-indexed (indexed="false"), non-stored (stored="false"), single valued (multiValued="false") numeric docValues (docValues="true") fields; the _version_ field is also a non-indexed, non-stored single valued docValues field; and, copy targets of updated fields, if any, are also non-indexed, non-stored single valued numeric docValues fields.* Let's consider I have declared following three fields in the schema <uniqueKey>id</uniqueKey> <field name="id" type="string" indexed="true" required="true"/> <field name='Field1' type="string" stored="true" indexed="true" docValues="false"/> <field name='Field2' type="string" stored="true" indexed="true" docValues="false"/> <field name='Field3' type="int" stored="false" indexed="false" docValues="true"/> With this I am trying to create couple of solr document ( id =1) with only Field1 and Field2 and it's also indexed. And I could search the documents based on Field1 and Field2 Now after a while, I am adding a new field called Field3 by passing the id field ( id=1) and Field3 ( Field3=100 ( which is docvalues field in our case ). What will happen now ? Will the complete document gets re indexed or only Field3 get added under docValues ? Pls confirm.
