Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3421) Distributed Search doesn't allow for HTTP Authentication
Date Sat, 28 Apr 2012 11:57:48 GMT


Peter Sturge commented on SOLR-3421:

It's also worth noting that one of the advantages of this approach is that is allows for partial
results to be returned (with error details in the response) if one or more shards are unavailable,
but others are ok. An optional flag to allow this (or not) can switch this feature on or off.

> The distributed search feature allows one to configure the list of shards the SearchHandler
should query and aggregate results from using the "shards" parameter. Unfortunately, there
is no way to configure any sort of authentication between shards and a distributed search-enabled
SearchHandler. It'd be good to be able to specify an authentication type, auth credentials,
and transport security to allow installations that don't have the benefit of being protected
by a firewall some measure of security.
