Subject [jira] [Created] (CONNECTORS-1286) Solr Plugin: Add support for User Principal
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2016 16:09:40 GMT
Konrad Holl created CONNECTORS-1286:

             Summary: Solr Plugin: Add support for User Principal
                 Key: CONNECTORS-1286
             Project: ManifoldCF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Solr-5.x component
    Affects Versions: ManifoldCF 2.3
            Reporter: Konrad Holl
            Priority: Minor

I’m using ManifoldCF 2.3 with Solr 5.4.1 and the Velocity templating engine. I needed to
do searches with ACLs enabled and installed the plugin. Unfortunately it is not possible to
use the login information provided by Jetty in the Solr plugin.

As of Solr 5.3 it is possible to extract the authenticated user from the SolrQueryRequest
I added these lines to the code in org.apache.solr.mcf.ManifoldCFSearchComponent before the
evaluation of parameters for authenticated user name:

    String authDomain = (String)args.get("AuthDomain");

    if (rb.req.getUserPrincipal() != null) {
                domainMap.put("", rb.req.getUserPrincipal().getName() + ((authDomain == null)
? "" : "@" + authDomain));
    else {
      // Get the authenticated user name from the parameters

I also needed an additional setting “authDomain” in the search component configuration
(solrconfig.xml). Now I can use Velocity even for documents with ACLs :o)
