Encrypt/Hide DB Password supplied in Solr Cloud's collection data-config.xml

Encrypt/Hide DB Password supplied in Solr Cloud's collection data-config.xml

Hi All,

 

We are using solr as solr cloud with running on 4 nodes of solr server and most of peoples are having access on Admin Console.

 

Our solr developers are supplying DB password in plain text in data-config.xml file which is accessible over Admin Console and anybody can see the same.

 

Could you please let me know how we can hide/ecrypt or store password somewhere in file and use the same in data-config.xml.

 

Appriciate your help to resolve the issue.

 

Thanks,

Bhavesh

Hi Bhavesh,

 

I see that upstream Solr has added this capability via JIRA SOLR-4392.  This feature does not exist in the current CDH5.x but will almost certainly be available with CDH6 when that is released.
