You approach is correct but you should use groups instead of users. So
just give a group permission, and add users to groups, this way you
don't have to worry about reindexing when adding more users, just add
the user to the group.

Subject: searching portions of an index


    I am new to lucene. We need to provide search to several users of a
system. Each user has access to a (different)set of documents. The same
document might be accessible by different users. I want to implement
this without indexing a document multiple times. The approach I thought
of was to use a field that is indexed, as well as stored in the index,
which contains the ids of all the users that can access the document. I
could then use boolean queries to search for documents accessible by a
particular user. I figured that I would have to delete and add the whole
document again into the system if a new user is to be given access to an
already indexed document(and I figure that this will happen frequently
in the system). Is there a better approach that I can take?
