Upfront, I’m sorry if there is any obvious answer here that I failed to find.
The question: Given an existing index, is it possible to add more collections to it later?
What I found:
I know one could do a wildcard index, so by definition, this should work?
I have a collection two collections with users. I have an index to query against both collections. In the future, I have a new type of user and add a new collection. Is it now possible to amend the index to pull data from the new collection as well?
- Using wildcards would be inefficient as there are a ton of other collections as well in this DB.
- Deleting and re-creating would be resource-intensive and cause the index to be unavailable during the cache-timeout…
Any help on the subject would be appreciated!
