Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-7274) Pluggable authentication module in Solr
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2015 15:24:56 GMT


Ishan Chattopadhyaya commented on SOLR-7274:

bq. Doesn't Apache Shiro do all of this and give you an ini file with which to configure everything?
They also have a web-app filtering system too (also see

I did have a look at Shiro, but my initial thought was that it might not fit our bill due
to a couple of reasons:
* Shiro doesn't have out of the box support for Kerberos
* Shiro's commit patterns indicated that it is not a very active project at the moment, and
hence I wasn't sure if having Solr depend on Shiro was a good idea.

Maybe someone more experienced with Shiro might help me understand if this isn't true. Hadoop
Common's hadoop-auth library seems easier to leverage here, esp. for Kerberos, and it is already
a dependency for Solr.

> To begin with, it'd be good to have support for kerberos and basic auth.
