SearchStax Managed Solr clients sometimes ask about the following Solr indexing error:
2021-05-07 17:18:48.689 ERROR (qtp123456-78) <replica> o.a.s.h.RequestHandlerBase org.apache.solr.common.SolrException: Invalid Number: <bad value> for field <numeric field>
This is one of many Indexing Errors that we encounter. It means that your application sometimes issues a non-numeric value to a numeric field. This results in the document being dropped from the index. The error message usually identifies both the broken value and the field.
This could indicate a schema field-definition error, but the examples we see commonly involve legacy data or issues in the code that generates the value.
