Often when using Solr, I forget what the command is to delete documents so I’m just keeping it here. This command will both delete the documents matched by the query and commit the deletion.
Query is format field:value. To delete all of your documents enter *:*
BTW – if you do this from a browser make sure that you close the browser window when you are finished. I once had Firefox crash and then when it came up I opted to recover the closed windows. This instantly executed this command and deleted all of my documents. it was not a good feeling.
Talk to you soon,
