I have created a Content view that works perfectly, believing I would later add facets to it once Solr is up and running.

Now that Solr works together with Search API, I realize that to use facets I need my view to be a Search view.

Unfortunately now with the view being a Search view I can no longer use:
Contextual filter - Content: Has taxonomy term ID (with depth)
Relationship - Flags: my flag (by any user)
Field - Flags: Flag link
Field - Computed fields: (values are all 0)
Field - Content: Path (Found a work around for this one)

Is there a way to make my Search view behave like a Content view and therefore have access to all needed functionalities?
Or may be could I use facets on my Content view? None of my tests worked though.

  • So far what I did is to load the Content view from the Search view using an embeded View field. I'm not a fan of this solution for obvious performance issues, but at least it works as expected.

This is something I'm still searching for an authoritative solution to/answer on.

This is apparently known issue with Flag and Views, with most people taking programmatic approaches to solve their particular problem.

There's a patch to that should address at least some of your problems here. https://www.drupal.org/node/1362298. This seems to be the closest anyone is to a solution at the moment.
