Subject: [VuFind-Tech] Sharding (Multi-Index) and record loading leads to "Record Solr:recordid does not exist." error message
I try to use sharding with an internal and an external Solr Index in vufind 2.2 but ran into problems when accessing the records of the external index.
For my purposes I configured [IndexShards] and [ShardPreferences] in searches.ini, referencing two solr cores with two very similar. The ids are not overlapping since I used prefixes for the ids of the internal index.
The search-requests worked fine for each index and also the merged result-lists showed up as expected, when I selected the checkboxes for both shards.
But every time I try to load a record of the external index, I get the following error message:
"An error has occurred
An error occurred during execution; please try again later.
Please contact your library for further assistance."
My vufind-logfile tells me, that the retrieved record "does not exist". (But the record does exist, it just can't be loaded).
My guess is, that the URL-parameter for the external shard is missing in the record-loading request, since when I add this missing URL-parameter (something like "&shards=hostname%2Fsolr%2Fbiblio") the record is loaded.
Could someone please point me to the place in the code where I have to add this url-param during the load request (Of course this has to depend on the IndexShards-settings in searches.ini and the respective index-source of the current record).
Many thanks and best wishes
