3.1 Copying fields

copyField makes it so that all the data coming into the source will be copied over to dest , before analysis happens. This allows for us to index and query a field in multiple ways, e.g.:

<field name="name" type="text_general" indexed="true" stored="true" />
<field name="name_exact" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false" />

<copyField source="name" dest="name_exact" />

Here the document only stores the field name but we can also query using the field name_exact, which will only match the entire names.

IMPORTANT: If dest either takes multiple values from source , or is copied to from many sources, remember to set multiValued to "true" on the dest field.
