Currently working with the wikipedia demo. I'm trying to have a column both indexed into solr and available for search via a normal cassandra secondary index. All of this is running on the same search node.
When I try to create the secondary index, I get a message that the index already exists. It looks like it was created as part of the solr index. However, if I try query it like I would a secondary index, I get an error in the log stating "Solr search queries only supported on the 'solr_query' field".
A little background: there are certain cases in our application where "near real-time" isn't fast enough. We need certain pieces of data to be available within the system immediately, and so a secondary index is needed so that we can look them up right away without having to wait for Solr to finish committing the changes.
