Enable indexing and querying of near and range operators for Decimal128.
While this feature would be valuable for me, I've had a better idea that would solve it and all kinds of other scenarios as well:
See also my feature request about type coercion. That would solve this need for me.
Agreed. It should work with the new Sort features as well.
Although for the purposes of Atlas Search, I would settle for a lossy type coercion to a normal decimal or int64 (depending on the defined representation).
This is extremely important for us to have Atlas Search support for decimal data values such as prices.
