-----------------------------------------

[~noble.paul] OK I filed SOLR-11230 for introducing the HTTP APIs for configuring global properties
in security.json. If you get a chance, can you please review (and commit) the patch for this
jira?

> Solr allows configuring roles to control user access to the system. This is accomplished
through rule-based permission definitions which are assigned to users.
> The authorization framework in Solr passes the information about the request (to be authorized)
using an instance of AuthorizationContext class. Currently the only way to extract authenticated
user is via getUserPrincipal() method which returns an instance of java.security.Principal
class. The RuleBasedAuthorizationPlugin implementation invokes getName() method on the Principal
instance to fetch the list of associated roles.

> In case of basic authentication mechanism, the principal is the userName. Hence it works
fine. But in case of kerberos authentication, the user principal also contains the RELM information
e.g. instead of foo, it would return foo@EXAMPLE.COM. This means if the user changes the authentication
mechanism, he would also need to change the user-role mapping in authorization section to
use foo@EXAMPLE.COM instead of foo. This is not good from usability perspective.
