Look at etc/zebradb/ccl.properties.

By default, itemtype and itype are not the same index :

itemtype 1=9006
mc-itemtype itemtype

itype 1=8031
mc-itype itype

If you whant itemtype to behave like itype, in ccl.properties :
comment lines :
itemtype 1=9006
mc-itemtype itemtype

Write after line :
itype 1=8031
mc-itype itype
Those :
itemtype itype
mc-itemtype itype

And restart zebra server.

Best regards,
