Solr Index with HTTP Authentication

Written by: Open Solr Administrator

You can now also use HTTP Auth for your solr index.

Here are the security mechanisms implemented by

  • IP Access rules per Request Handlers
    • Users are able to set certain Request Handlers (/select, /update, etc...) to be accessible from certain IP address, OR the "all" wildcard.
  • HTTP Authentication 
    • ​Users are able to set a username and password for their index, so that every Request Handler in the index is only accessible upon valid HTTP Authentication.
  • SSL connections
    • ​All connections throughout the entire website, and throughout all of the opensolr cloud servers, are powered by state of the art SSL encryption.
