Trouble with Riak Search JSON Extractor

Hello Matt,

Are you receiving any indexing errors in your logs (check the Solr logs as well)? To be sure, I just wrote a test (using our erlang pb api, <>) using a custom schema, and I didn’t run into any troubles; I also checked via the http api. If you have the required _yz* fields, you should get those back with the document. If you want the groups items themselves, you’d have to make `stored` true.
