[jira] [Created] (LUCENE-8409) Cannot delete individual fields from index

JIRA jira@apache.org
Cetra Free created LUCENE-8409:

             Summary: Cannot delete individual fields from index
                 Key: LUCENE-8409
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-8409
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Cetra Free

This is based upon the following tickets:



I'd like a way to be able to clear and recreate a specific field so I don't have to completely reindex if I change a field type.

It's a real pain if you change a specific field from single valued to multivalued, you have to delete the entire index from disk and start from scratch.

As being able to modify a field is not an [intended feature|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-8235?focusedCommentId=16530918&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-16530918], It'd be preferable if a field could be at least deleted and recreated to deal with this scenario.
