RE: Workaround needed to sort on Multivalued fields indexed in SOLR
How are you hoping that Sort will work on a multivalued field? Normally, trying to do this makes no sense.
For example, if you have two authors for a document:
Then would you expect the document to sort under 'S' for Smith, or 'J' for Jones? There's probably not a specific rule to choose one or the other, at least not in a generic sense.
If you wanted (for example) to be able to sort by the first author, then you could index just the first author in a separate, non-multivalued field, purely for the sort (while still having all the authors in your multivalued field)

I have indexed many documents which has a field for authors which is multivalued.
