Add HTTP Auth to Resilient Cluster

Written by: Open Solr Administrator

When managing a cluster, basically, you just have to make sure you setup HTTP Auth in all your replicas, and the master, or, simply just create another cluster, using the Create Cluster dialog:
This will give you the option to set a new HTTP Auth for your new cluster, and it will all be applied automatically, when creating a new cluster.

Or, follow these steps to update HTTP Auth in your existing cluster.
