  1. Oops, I never put a link to the Schema API or DocValues pages on this page. Here's some possible verbiage:

    Schema API: Use curl commands to read various parts of a schema or create new fields and copyField rules.

    DocValues: Describes how to create a docValues index for faster lookups.

  2. Hi Solr Community,

    It would be great if you give some more visual examples/diagrams for basic terms, e.g. for field properties, copy field and etc.

    Thank you in advance.
