id_searchin my Typesense cluster? The only way i can save the
idin the extension configuration is byte writing
<other fields>, id, <more fields>. but then the extension can’t map that
idonto the custom
id_searchfield i have in Typesense, because i know the
idfield is special and i cant search by it, so it has to be named something different.
