[jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4470) Support for basic http auth in internal solr requests

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-4470?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13665163#comment-13665163 ]

Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-4470:
-----------------------------------

We could mark it experimental in the beginning if we want to give it a soft launch for risk-willing users only. I know of at least 2 companies both capable and willing to test, report bugs and submit patches.

I'll prepare a VOTE thread on the dev list for a) Should SolrCloud support auth/https and b) is SOLR-4470 a viable solution

> We want to protect any HTTP-resource (url). We want to require credentials no matter what kind of HTTP-request you make to a Solr-node.
> It can faily easy be acheived as described on http://wiki.apache.org/solr/SolrSecurity. This problem is that Solr-nodes also make "internal" request to other Solr-nodes, and for it to work credentials need to be provided here also.
> Ideally we would like to "forward" credentials from a particular request to all the "internal" sub-requests it triggers. E.g. for search and update request.
> But there are also "internal" requests
> * that only indirectly/asynchronously triggered from "outside" requests (e.g. shard creation/deletion/etc based on calls to the "Collection API")
> * that do not in any way have relation to an "outside" "super"-request (e.g. replica synching stuff)
> We would like to aim at a solution where "original" credentials are "forwarded" when a request directly/synchronously trigger a subrequest, and fallback to a configured "internal credentials" for the asynchronous/non-rooted requests.
> In our solution we would aim at only supporting basic http auth, but we would like to make a "framework" around it, so that not to much refactoring is needed if you later want to make support for other kinds of auth (e.g. digest)
> We will work at a solution but create this JIRA issue early in order to get input/comments from the community as early as possible.
