Faceting High Cardinality Field for Grouping in Data
TLDR Jack questioned faceting a high cardinality field for grouping, Kishore Nallan confirmed it is fine except for additional memory use.

like for child-parent relationship, where 3 or 4 items will share the parent_id, is it okay to group by the parent_id to display only one child item per parent_id?
My assumption was that faceting over a largely varying field is not a good idea, but I just realized I may be wrong on this.

> To group on a particular field, it must be a faceted field.
so, you’re saying is that having a parent_id a faceted field is fine, right?
