      There appears to be an error in the admin interface (/solr/admin/schema.jsp) when using a '*' field in a schema. In the example
      schema.xml, there is a commented out sample:

        <!-- uncomment the following to ignore any fields that don't
      already match an existing
             field name or dynamic field, rather than reporting them as an error.
             alternately, change the type="ignored" to some other type e.g.
      "text" if you want
             unknown fields indexed and/or stored by default -->
        <!--dynamicField name="*" type="ignored" /-->

      We have this un-commented, and in the schema browser via the admin interface I see that all non-dynamic fields get a type of "ignored".

      for example, I see this in the Solr admin interface:

      Field: uid
      Dynamically Created From Pattern: *
      Field Type: ignored

      though the field definition is:

        <field name="uid"  type="integer" indexed="true" stored="true"/>
