Correction:  Item 1 is not an absolute requirement; we can use Apache or Tomcat if that makes
things any easier.

Subject: Solr M2M authentication on Jetty

Dear Solr Community,

We would like to provide an in-house group of users access to our Solr database in a way that
meets the following specifications:

1.       Use the Jetty web service that Solr 6.0 installs by default.

2.       Provide an M2M (machine-to-machine) interface, so a user can setup a cron job that
periodically executes a query and stores the results.

3.       Authentication credentials for the M2M interface to the Jetty service are provided
by an LDAP service so it is possible to log who is accessing what data.

4.       Result data retrieved from Solr (result UIDs) are recorded by SPLUNK.

Can you offer advice and/or point us to a working example of any of these specification items?

Here's what we have so far:

A.      Completed item 1 above.  We've installed Solr 6.0 with Jetty on a Linux VM and it
works great.

B.      Partially addressed item 3 above in that we can login to Jetty using LDAP.  However,
our implementation is such that the login credentials are input interactively (via a login
dialog).  We don't yet know how to perform this login from machine to machine.  This is the
main sticking point right now.

Any insight you might provide would be greatly appreciated.
