List of Facets in Collection and Version Update
TLDR arif wants to get a list of all facets in a collection. Jason suggests using
facet_by: * and clarifies that removing all records with a particular attribute won't remove the field from the schema. Upgrading to the latest version should be scheduled manually.

I need some suggestions. I need a list of all facets available in a collection. And I have a facet defined by a wildcard like
tag.*in the schema. From my observation - if I get a collection via the GET API, I get the current schema which will include facets like
tag.something2. Now my confusions are -
1. is this the proper way to get the list of all current facets?
2. would this approach be feature proof? (I mean if there is any chance to not providing this info via this API)
tag.something1had only one one record and I have removed it. should I still expect to have facet in the schema?
4. is there any limitation of such dynamic facets? in terms of the number of facets and performance in the future?
v0.25.0.rc30you can send
facet_by: *and that will return all the available facets
