SOLR query fetches wrong result

Expert Contributor

Hi all,


 I like to know what is the difference between queries--->  fieldname: value  vs "fieldname": "value"


1) In the query menu of solr UI. if I give below query it fetches me all documents even it doesnot match the value in fieldname

fieldname: value 



2) "fieldname": "value" 

        It fetches correct result.


I was wondered what is the difference between 1 vs 2 query?


Please help me to understand the difference of both queries.



Thanks & Regards,

J.Ganesh Kumar

Hi Ganesh,


Could you share the "response header" of the query from solr web UI. We can able to fetch correct result with the below queries.


fieldname: "value"  &  fieldname: value 


Providing query with "fieldname": "value"  will get you a parse error for fieldname.
